The identity ot the person whose photORraph is reproduced above is knuwn to 
hundreds of North Carolina pharmacists. Born at Selma, N. C, cdui ted at 
Wake Forest Collefre and the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, licensed as a 
pharmacist in this state in 1892, Dean of the University of North Carolina SchotW 
of Pharmacy from 1897 to 1931, the late Edward Vernon Howell dedicated his life 
to the service of his fellow-pharmacists. 

This hitherto unpublished photograph was made by Kelly Bennett of Bryson 
City while he and Dean Howell were trout fishing in the Smoky Mountains of 
Western North Carolina. Dean Howell was not aware his picture was bein; made 
so Mr. Bennett is probably the original "candid camera" photogrrapher.

#The Lilly man in your territory is a regular caller on your 
physicians. That is a privilege he enjoys through the Lilly 
reputation for scientific achievement, through a record of fair 
dealing extending back through the years, and through his 
own abihty to bring to the doctor helpful information. It was 
your Lilly man who, back in 1923, first introduced Iletin (In- 
sulin, Lilly) to the medical profession. Since that eventful day 
Iletin (Insulin, Lilly) and its modifications have grown to be 
among the most profitable of drug-store items. The sale is 
steady, the margin fair. Iletin (Insulin, Lilly) in common with 
all other Lilly Products is sold through the drug trade ex- 
clusively. That is the Lilly Policy. 

Another veteran of the Lilly sales 
organization is A. L. Steen, 
who last April 5 completed 
twenty years as a field repre- 
sentative. The entire period hus 
been spent in and around Atad- 
ison, Wisconsin, where Mr. 
Steen still resides.

A Continuing Program of Education for Pharmacists, Drug Store 
Managers and Retail Drug Clerks 

Sponsored by the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association in Cooperation with the 
North Carolina State Department of Education 

Would you like to know more about incompatibilities of the newer remedies or the 
new psj'chology as applied to selling? Have you informed yourself about modern drug 
store mercliandising methods and kept up with recent developments in vitamin therapy? 
Why is the semi-open prescription case being more widely adopted and what are some of 
the ways of increasing the average sale? If you are interested in such cpiestions as these, 
you will be interested in the vocational training program now being planned for i/o«. 

On November 30, 1940, President Joseph Hollingsworth of the N. C. P. A. appointed 
Professor I. W. Rose as Chairman of the State Advisory Committee on Distributive 
Education for the Drug Industry of North Carolina and thus set the wheels in motion 
for the Association to participate in one of tlie most practical and needed educational 
programs ever offered in this State. Chairman Rose, Acting-Dean of the State Universit.v 
School of Pharmacy, will be assisted in ])romoting this program by the following pharma- 
cists : Ralpli Rogers of Durham, Paul Bissette of Wilson, Phil Gattis of Raleigh and 
Roger McDuffie of Greensboro. T. Carl Brown, State Supervisor of Distributive Education 
in North Carolina, will act as a coordinator in setting up the training program. 

Prior to the appointment of the Committee on Distril»utive Education b.y President 
Hollingsworth, the program had received unanimous approval by the North Carolina 
Board of Pharmacy and the N. C. P. A. Executive Committee. 

The State Advisory Committee, with assistance from the State Supervisor of Distribu- 
tive Education, tentatively plans to cmi)loy an itinerant instructor who will conduct a 
training program at various points throughout North Carolina for two groups: (1) 
Pharmacists and managers of drug stores and (2) Employed sales peoi)le. Funds for this 
instructional iirogram will be provided by the State of Nortii Carolina and the Federal 
government under the George-Deen Act, passed by Congress in l!'3(i, effective in 1937. 

Druggists in the State will be expected to: 

(1) Cooperate in setting ui» local programs in accordance with the instructor's 

(2) Attend classes as regularly as possible. 

(3) Assist in selecting topics to be discussed in the series of ten to twenty lessons 

(A) Take an active part in class discussions. 

(5) Each i)erson enrolling in the course will pa.v a small registration fee, not over 
i $1.00 for the series of programs. This will be used in matching State and Federal funds 

to pa.v the instructor's salary. 
\ Arrangements are being made to reach all drug stores in tlie State by planning a 

series of itineraries which the instructor will follow from year to year. Druggists from 
isolated places will have to travel a few miles but in no case will this distance be so

great as to work a hardship on him or his clerk. A maximum of 20 will be enrolled in 
each group to stimulate class discussions. If more than 20 Avish to enroll in a particular 
town, additional groups will be formed. Classes will be held at night unless the local 
grouij i^refers some other time. During the day the instructor will visit drug stores 
located in the immediate vicinity and cooperate with the owners and their sales force in 
promoting the profession of pharmacy. 

The need for training in the field of distributive occupations is surprisingly great. 
In tlie fields of industry, production costs have been steadily declining because of more 
efficient methods and practices. But in the field of distribution the cost of doing business 
has increased 50% during the past 30 years. The Twentieth Century Fund, after exten- 
sive research, states that 59c of the consumer dollar goes to pay the costs of distribution. 
This does not mean that retailers are getting rich. On the contrary there is a 100% 
turnover in retail business every ten years, because tlie business is not profitable or has 
failed. The problem of increasing the efficiency of selling and merchandising personnel 
is a most important one, particularly under modern conditions of shorter hours and higher 
wages, demands for increased and better service by the consumer, and increased taxes. 

A customer comes into your drug store and says, "Oh, I am getting the worst cold, and 
I ache all over, and I feel terrible. What can you give me to break it up?" If he insisted 
on treating himself, would you suggest some certain remedy, or place several before him 
and let him make the selection himself? Why do some of the chain drug stores make it a 
rule to place the soda fountain against the outside wall and wliat are some of tlie 
departments of the drug store that may be grouped together to advantage"? What would 
your answer be? Which of the commonly used biological products sold in the drug store 
are used for active, and which for passive immunization? What are we to do about the 
thousands of new remedies? These and similar questions will be discussed by the instructor 
with the class once the program is actively under way in your section of the State. 

The success of this program in North Carolina will be determined largely by the 
interest which you and your fellow pharmacist manifest in the work. The combined 
efforts and cooperation of North Carolina pharmacists will make a success of this program 
— are you willing to do your share? Write me as soon as possible giving me your per- 
sonal reaction to this educational program designed to give you a wider outlook and a 
Ijetter understanding' of many new developments in the field of pharmacy. — W. J. Smith. 

The T. M. A.— A Worthy 

At the request of the N. C. P. A. Execu- 
tive Committee t^^e officers of the T. M. A., 
composed of C. H. Smith, Presicjent; N. 
B. Moury, Vice-President; J. F Goodrich, 
Secretary-Treasurer, and Mrs. Louise Jones, 
Assistant Secretary-Treasurer, mailed an at- 
tractive folder listing the members of this 
organization, now numbering nearly 200, to 
every drug store in North Carolina. _ 

The T. M. A. is a valuable part of the 
N. C. P. A. Each year they contribute their 
time and their money to make the annual 
meeting of the Association a more success- 
ful one. This past spring they staged a 
splendid banquet in Charlotte and handled 
one of the largest groups ever to assemble 
at a state pharmaceutical association meet- 

If you enjoy the banquets which the T. 
M. A. stage each year and appreciate the 
] art they have played in the growth of the 
Association, refer to your folder and give 
the T. M. A. members a break when you 
need merchandise. If vour salesman's name 

doesn't appear in the list, suggest he affiliate 
with t'e organization at once. Any of the 
above-mentioned officers will be glad to take 
his application. 


The names of the first 100 members 
to send in their 1941 dues to the 
Pharmaceutical Association will be 
published in the February issue of the 
Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. A 
new certificate of membership has 
been adopted by the Executive Com- 
mittee to be issued annually and will 
be mailed you immediately upon re- 
ceipt of your dues payment. 

The pharmaceutical emblem on the 
new certificate was designed by 
Philip Suttlemyre, son of P. J. Suttle- 
myre, Hickory. After your certificate 
arrives display it in a prominent 
place; let your customers know you 
are proud to be a part of organized

Reamer Elected Local Secretary 

The Executive Couimittee of the Associa- 
tion and the Directors of the Durham Drug 
Club announce the election of I. T. Reamer 
as Local Secretary for the 1941 annual 
meeting of the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association in Durham. Convention 
headquarters and the exact dates of the 
meeting will be announced in a later issue 
of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. 

Mr. Reamer is Chief Pharmacist at Duke 
Hospital and is well known to the members 
of the N. C. P. A., having served as Chair- 
man of the Committee on Practical Phar- 
macy and Dispensing for a number of years. 
He is splendidly qualified for the task which 
has been assigned him. If his work as 
President of the Durliam Drug Club can 
be taken as a criterion, the success of the 
next annual meeting of the Association can 
be assured.

1941 — A Legislative Year 

Shortly after you receive this issue of 
the Journal the N. C. P. A. Legislative 
Committee will meet to consider legislation 
having a bearing on pharmacy in this 
State. The proposed prophylactic bill will 
be discussed at this meeting as well as a 
number of other bills which have already 
been brouglit to the attention of various 
members of the Committee. 

If j-ou have legislation which you believe 
desirable to introduce in the next General 
Assembly, write the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee, Paul Thompson of Fairmont, so 
that he may bring it to the attention of the 
group. In addition to Chairman Thompson, 
the following persons have been appointed

Executive Committee Honors 
Miss Alice Noble 

In recognition of her nineteen years of 
loyal and efficient work for the Association, 
the N. C. P. A. Executive Committee gave 
a testimonial dinner in honor of Miss Alice 
Noble at the Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill, on 
the night of December 2. The guests of 
honor included Miss Noble's father, Dr. M. 
C. S. Noble, 85-year-old professor emeritus ; 
President Prank P. Graham, and the 
honoree's closest Chapel Hill friends. 

C. C. Fordham, Jr., a life-long friend of 
Miss Noble, presided as toastmaster and 
President Hollingsworth, speaking for the 
members of the Association, presented her 
a handsome set of three pieces of luggage 
purchased with contributions sent to the 
Committee by druggists from all over the 
State. High tributes were paid Miss Noble 
who was presented as "Knowing more drug- 
gists than any other woman in North Caro- 

The toastmaster called on President 
Graham, who is not only a life-long friend 
of the Noble family, but whose father, 
Doctor Alexander Graham, was a contem- 
porary and close friend of Dr. Noble. Pay- 
ing tribute to the guest of honor, President 
Graham sketched the growth of the School 
of Pharmacy under the late Dean Vernon 
Howell and Dean Beard, and told how Miss 
Noble had worked indefatigably and shared 
in its growth. 

Acting-Dean I. W. Rose read the follow- 
ing letter from Dean Beard who is away 
on a leave of absence : 

The Banquet Group, 
Chapel Hill, N. C. 

Dear Friends: 

I am happy over the fact that the Exec- 
utive Committee has made itself the agency 
through which the druggists of the State 
may express their appreciation to Miss 
Alice Noble for her many years of useful 
service to organized pharmacy in North 
Carolina, and I am using this occasion to 
send her a "banquet greeting" as well as 
assurance of my personal and official grati- 

Perhaps no one else is in a position quite 
so well as I to evaluate the quality of Miss 

Noble's efforts because she and I were sort 
of partners in the work of the Association 
and hence I could and did watch her ener- 
gies flowing freely, conscientiously, happily, 
and effectively into her phase of the job. 
There were times, busy times, when I feared 
that her health would break under the strain 
and I frequently asked her to go home for 
needed rest, but if the work needed her she 
consistently refused to quit until her share 
in the enterprise was completed. I would 
like to be there tonight to witness and to 
participate in the outflowing of appreciation 
for her loyal services over almost two dec- 
ades, but I will at least journey there in 
spirit and say "Thank you sincerely, Alice, 
for a hard task worthily performed." 

To the others who are assembled for the 
occasion I send cordial greetings and the 
hope that the Christmas season will be a 
merry one and that the New Year will 
bring all of you good cheer, good health, 
and happy days. 


Miss Noble, in her response expressed 
appreciation of the privilege of working 
with Dean Beard and the pharmacists of the 
State, and paid especial tribute to the State 
Association. The following toast to the 
Association concluded her talk : 
Your years have been many; your achieve- 
ments of the best. 
In service to pharmacy you have met many 

a stern test 
Here's wishing you now prosperity with- 
out end 
I give you the Association — a tried and 
true friend. 

The entire expense of the banquet was 
borne by members of the Executive Com- 
mittee which is composed of Joe Hollings- 
worth, Mount Airy; C. C. Fordham, Jr., 
Greensboro; Ralph Rogers, Durham; Paul 
Bissette, "Wilson; Phil D. Gattis, Raleigh; 
P. J. Suttlemyre, Hickory ; and W. J. Smith, 
Chapel Hill. 

"In decorations and gastronomieally it 
was the most perfect dinner I ever attended 
at the Inn," one of the guests told a re- 
porter of The Chapel Hill Weekly who in- 
quired about the affair next day. 

Seated at the head of the table from lei't to right are N. C. P. A. President Joe 
HolliugsAvorth, Miss Alice Noble, Toastmaster C. C. Fordhain, Jr., Mrs. Fordham and 
President Frank Graham of the State University. Due to the unusual large size talile a 
number of attending guests do not appear in the above picture. 

I Thank You With All My Heart 

I wish very sincerely that I knew liow to thank each of you for all of your kindnesses 
to nie during tlie long time that I have been a part of North Carolina Pharmacy. For 
)nore than nineteen years you have done so many thoughtful things for me and have 
extended to me so many courtesies that I will never be able to thank you sufficiently or 
to show you how grateful I am that 1 have such friends. 

May I also express my apjireciation to the Executive Committee for the wonderful 
banquet they gave me recently- as well as to say how deeply moved I was over the com- 
plimentary remarks that were made about me. I also want to express my gratitude to 
every one of the pharmacists who contributed to the beautiful gift that Avas presented to 
me at the banquet. Your generosity and tlioughtfulness simply overwhelmed me and I 
tliank you from tlie bottom of my heart. 1 know the banquet was the very loveliest party 
tliat has ever been given in Chajiel Hill and no one has ever possessed a more useful or a 
handsomer gift than my beautiful "Tufraw" luggage. The evening was really Thanks- 
giving and Christmas all rtilled into one. I shall never forget it. It was the very liai)j)iest 
and nicest day of my life. I do wish I knew how to exjiress my a])])reciation. T wish I 
knew who contributed to the present so that I might thank eacii one ]iersonally. 1 shall 
treasure my wonderful present always and I shall never cease to l)e grateful that I have 
such kind and sincere friends. 

I cannot let this opportunity go Viy without wishing for you — one and all — the happiest 
New Year imaginable — a year full of the blessings that make life worth while. I hope that 
T may see each of you often during the year. Please be sure to come down home when- 
ever your paths lead in this direction. I think of you often and maj- I say just once 
again — here's to each and every one of you! — Alice Xohlr.

Greensboro Drug Club Declares War 

— Attacks Turkey on Night of 

December 6 

Seventy members and guests of the 
Greensboro Drug Clul) met in that city on 
the night of December 6 to participate in a 
well-organized program and to enjoy a 
delicious home-cooked turkey supper. Ealph 
J. Sykes, President of the Club, presided 
over the meeting with the capable assistance 
of Roger McDuffie and Carolyn Cox, Secre- 
tary-Treasurer of the local drug organiza- 

President Joe Hollingsworth of the State 
Association spoke to the assembled group 
about the Merchandising Clinic recently 
held in Asheville and announced that plans 
were already being made for the next an- 
nual meeting of the N. C. P. A. in Durham. 
The new educational training program for 
pharmacists and drug clerks sponsored by 
the Association with the cooperation with 
the State Department of Education was ex- 
plained by W. J. Smith. 

Mrs. E. J. Sykes and Mrs. S. L. Jones 
were presented with handsome gifts from 
Southern Dairies for having been married 
longer than anyone else present — 32 years. 
The youngest bride, Mrs. J. W. Finch, re- 
ceived a gift from Clover Brand Dairies. Of 
the ladies present Mrs. Wesley Coble had 
the youngest baby, 3 years old, and Avas 
awarded a valuable prize. 

Following this feature of the program 
Roger McDuffie announced he had several 
valuable prizes to be presented the winner 
of the next contest: Make a one minute 
speech, recite a poem or sing a song. R. J. 
Sykes, Roger McDuffie, J. T. Usher, R. W. 
Coble and A. G. Poindexter tested their 
voices — .both major and minor — on the au- 
dience while S. L. Jones, I. O. Wilkinson, 
Carolyn Cox and L. D. Russell tested their 
oratorical abilities. Sam McFalls and W. 
J. Smith recited poems. The Committee on 
Prizes announced Sam McFalls had won 
first prize with his poem and was awarded 
a bottle of 500 Seconal (the bottle was 
later discovered to be filled with empty pink 
capsules with mercury added for weight — 

Roger McDuffie is supposed to be the perpe- 
trator of this hoax). The remaining four 
prizes (genuine) contributed by Arlington 
and Winthrop Chemical Companies were 
presented to A. G. Poindexter, J. T. Usher, 
S. L. Jones and L. D. Russell. 

Mrs. Frank Hayes and Mrs. A. G. Poin- 
dexter tied for first place on the quiz pro- 
gram conducted by Jimmy Gates by cor- 
rectly answering 18 out of a possible 20 
questions dealing with Christmas. They 
were awarded prizes with the compliments 
of Hollingsworth Candy Company and 
Buffalo Dairies. Typical question: What 
parasite (mistletoe) is generally found in 
the home at Christmas? Typical answer: 
Bill collectors.

:\Iis. Philip Van Every 
Corresponding Secretary 

Our first night meeting: Bain fell steadily, 
and the night was cold and messy, but we 
had a nice crowd and a grand time. 

Our president wore that red hat again 
an enjoyed herself thoroughly. She sug- 
gested our extending invitations to druggist 
and traveling men's wives in nearby towns 
to join our association. And now a com- 
mittee is busy at work doing that very 
thing, and we're so thrilled over it — more 
the merrier. We want them to join us, and 
are eagerly looking forward to the results. 

Always up to something, we've plans for 
a Oristmas get-to-gether with our husbands. 
/ can't wait! 

Mrs. Myrth Kraus, who joined us this 
time, is the wife of the pharmacist, at the 
Xew Charlotte Memorial Hospital. 

The roll was called and we noticed Mrs. 
J. M. Still looking perky and smart in red, 
green, and brown. Her husband is a sales- 
man for Winthrop Chemical Company, and 
they're a grand pair. 

Mrs. E. S. Everett looked smart in black 
and had a "sassy" red hankie tucked in her 

On our left was a regular bex-j' of lovelj' 
girls seated together. Mrs. C. W. Hagood, 
Mrs. L. S. Bonney, Mrs. E. D. Butler, Mrs. 
J. \V. Bennick, and Mrs. Leslie Barnliardt, 
would have done credit to Vogue. 

All around the room, each looked wonder- 

We did not see :Mrs. C. H. Smith. This 
was the very first time she's ever missed. 

"Also miss-you's" to some of our stand- 
bys, Mrs. Verner Stanley, Mrs. H. C. Greene, 
Mrs. J. K. Civil, Mrs. P. W. Delaney, Mrs. 
E. F. Rimmer and others. 

When Mrs. D. Clyde Lisk's name was 
called, someone answered, "Her husband's 
off tonight, so she stayed home." And, 
there you have the way we wives feel to- 
wards our druggist and traveling-men hus- 

A Free Offer 

January is inventory time. Every drug- 
gist should take an inventory. That is why 
this message is one of more than ordinary 
importance. Merchandise on your shelves 
is the equivalent of cash. Without an in- 
ventory you have no record of invested capi- 
tal ; therefore, it is impossible to determine 
the return per dollar, the most important 
thing in the drug business. Inventory re- 
veals dead and moribund stock — idle dollars. 
It brings to light merchandise likely to be 
overlooked. It is a check on insurable 
values. It establishes the basis of claims 
in case of a fire. It takes the guesswork 
out of tax reports and provides the basis for 
a loan. It is a key to gross margin. You 
may be operating at a profit, but that profit 
may be represented by accumulations of un- 
sold merchandise. You may be buying at a 
faster rate than you are selling or you may 
be selling at a faster rate than you are 
buying. An inventory offers the basis for 
finding out. A profit and loss statement 
well interpreted is all revealing but com- 
paratively few druggists are in a position 
to read the story that it tells. That is why 
it should be of interest to every retail drug- 
gist to follow u]) the offer of Eli Lilly and 
Company to interpret profit and loss state- 
ments of druggists without cost or obliga- 
tion of any kind and in strict confidence. 

How to Proceed 

First write Eli Lilly and Company, Box 
em, Indianapolis, and ask for i)rinted forms 
on which to submit your figures. Fill in the 
information required. Mail to Eli Lilly 
and Company. In due course you will re- 
ceive information about your own business 
and the successful operation of a drug store 
that would require years of time and effort 
to learn otherwise — that is, what thousands 
of others are doing and the results they ob- 
tain. Helpful information is l)rought to 
you without any cost and you need not even 
sign your own name providing a mailing 
address is sujjplied. Why not take a<ivan- 
tage of this liberal offer as soon as your in- 
ventory is completed?

It is relatively unimportant, in fact, un- 
desirable to store a host of scientific facts 
in our minds. However, it is important that 
the pharmacist know where and how to 
quickly locate information once the necessity 
arises. This was the advice given to a 
group of his students by the late Doctor 
Francis P. Venable. No truer statement 
could be made concerning the everyday 
practice of Pharmacy. With the great va- 
riety of subjects which the pharmacist is

I spilled ink on a white linen skirt. What 
shall I do? What is the antidote for shoe 
polish? I have a patient who just drank 
a bottle of Tincture of Iodine. Will starch 
counteract its action? What shall I dip 
pine cones in to make them burn with a 
red flame? How much does it cost to send 
a package to the Canal Zone? Such ques- 
tions are asked pharmacists every day. Are 
you able to answer them satisfactorily? You 
should be as it is a service that is expected 
of the pharmacist and, incidentally, one 
which pays dividends if handled properly-. 

In case you are one of those conscientious 
persons who is not satisfied with the job 
he is doing along this line and would like 
to improve it, there is listed below some 
very valuable aids which will help you in 
this work. In making up this list it is taken 
for granted that each pharmacy has the lat- 
est revision of the National Formulary and 
the Pharmacopoeia of the United States. 
The accompanying list is not an exhaustive 

one but is representative of the most im- 
portant subjects.

Eeprodueed below is a letter forwarded 
to the Journal, by The Davis Pharmacy of 
Williamston at the request of the Creo- 
mulsion Company of Atlanta, Georgia. The 
letter is in replj- to one written to the Com- 
jiany by D. R. Davis of Williamston and 
l)ub]ished in the December issue of this iiul)- 
lication. — Ed. 

November 2-5, 1940. 

Davis Pharmacy, 
Williamston, N. C. 

Gentlemen : 

We have your letter of November 22 with 
reference to the blotters mailed by us re- 
cently to physicians and are glad to assure 
you that we do not actively solicit physicians 
and we make no special effort at all to get 
physicians to dispense Creomulsion. We do 
have a mail campaign with physicians every 
fall and out of this we have noticed favor- 
able reaction on the part of physicians re- 
sulting in an increasing number of prescrip- 
tions written by them for patients to l)e 
filled bj- retail druggists. In the course of 
this campaign we have sold two or three 
orders each year to physicians either direct 
or through wholesale druggists but we are 
confident from all that we have seen of the 
campaign that there is a great deal more 
good resulting for retail druggists from the 
campaign than the inconsequential harm 
that maj' be done in the two or three in- 
stances where physicians have purchased it 
for dispensing direct to their patients. 

This gallon package of Creomulsion is not 
sold to wholesalers for them to retail to the 
trade but is handled only as a droj) ship- 
ment item by us. Accordingly we know 
where every gallon has gone that has been 
sold. No gallon has up to this time in the 
many years we have conducted this cam- 
jjaign been sold to a dispensing physician in 
the State of North Carolina. We do not 
know whether you have had any prescrip- 
tions from physicians as a result of this 
campaign or not but many retail druggists 
in North Carolina have sold large quantities 
of Creomulsion as a result of i)rescriptions 
that have come from this doctor cami)aign. 
In addition to this we advertise in every 
daily newspaper in your state and most of 
the better weeklies in your state as well. 
We are definitelj' working for a Ijetter and 

more profitable movement of Creomulsion 
through retail druggists and we feel sure 
that you will appreciate this information we 
have given you and our assurance that we 
are not working against you but that we are 
working to the best of our ability at all 
times for your best interest. 

In view of the fact that you sent a copy 
of your letter to the Carolina Journal op 
Pharmacy we should appreciate your send- 
ing the extra copy of this letter which we 
enclose to them. 

Cordially yours, 
W. K. Rivers,

Roots Boost Western N. C. Trade 

Western North Carolina mountaineers are 
receiving pretty good incomes from roots. 
With imports of brier roots from European 
countries stopped by the war, pipe manu- 
facturers are buying hugh quantities of the 
roots of mountain laurel, known to many 
for its flaming blooms in the Spring. 

Several small plants are located near 
Hendersonville to work certain types of 
laurel roots into pipe bowls. The industry 
is not expected to have a serious effect on 
the growth of the laurel, since the type of 
burl in demand is comj)aratively rare. 

After the little subterranean growths are 
found, they are carried to the factories, cut 
into various size blocks resembling tlie out- 
lines of a pipe bowl. They are then boiled 
to remove the sap and dried for 30 days. 
When completely dried, the wood is so hard 
that an ordinary knife will not cut it. 

After seasoning, the blocks arc sorted 
according to size and color and sliijiped to 
pipe manufacturers.

Bissette Drug Stores of Wilson and 

Greenville Double Gross Sales 

in Week 

Christmas joy reigned supreme this year 
in the Bissette Drug Stores of Wilson and 
Greenville, especially among the sales force. 

Paul Bissette, owner and manager of the 
Bissette Drug Stores, announced to liis sales 
force some time ago that each clerk would 
receive double salary during the last week 
of NovcmVjer providing the gross sales of 
the three stores were doubled during the 
same period. 

Double salary! What an incentive! The 
entire organization went to work — even the 
colored delivery boys were stimulated to 
solicit orders. Had Elmer Wheeler (Tested 
Selling Sentences) been around he couhl 
have picked up some good pointers in .sell- 
ing merchandise. 

Needless to say, the special sales drive 
was successful with each clerk receiving 
double his weekly salary. Congratulations 
to the entire organization.

50 Gross Misbranded Prophylactics 

Seized in Wilson — Peddler 


City detectives of Wilson arrested John 
F. Abbott recently for selling misbranded 
prophylactic merchandise. At the time of 
the arrest 50 gross of prophylactics were 
seized and later destroyed. 

Evidence introduced during the trial re- 
vealed that the defendant had been promis- 
cuously selling the merchandise in and 
around the tobacco markets of Wilson at 
three for a dime. Abbott was adjudged 
guilty by the court and was sentenced by 
Judge Charles B. McClain to two years 
probation on payment of the costs of the 
court action. The case Avas tried under 
the labeling provisions of the recently 
enacted State Pure Food, Drug and Cos- 
metic Act. 

Red Garter Cigars Popular in 1886 

Pharmacist Doane Herring, senior mem- 
ber of Herring's Drug Store, Wilson, has a 
copy of his opening order to Gilpin and 
Company, Baltimore, in 1886. Nearly 2000 
items appear on the invoice. 

Twenty gallons of grain alcohol (pharma- 
cists used their percolators for something 
besides display those days), Bed Garter 

cigars, 200 pounds of Epsom Salts (Ic per 
pound), laudanum, bulk bandage and many 
present-day proprietary preparations appear 
on the invoice. Lamps, lamp chimneys, 
wicks and shades must have been in demand 
as a large quantity had been ordered. 

Noticeably absent from the invoice were 
vitamins, vitamin preparations. Physicians 
of the "Eighties" hadn't discovered they 
could treat their patients with the alphaltet.

Carl Durham Awakes to Find 
Turkeys All Around Him 

Congressman Carl Durham went down to 
Eiverside Club last Friday to try his luck 
at wild turkey hunting. The club's game 
preserve, owned by a group of Chapel Hill 
citizens, stretches along the Haw Eiver 
down in Chatham County. 

After having lunch at the lodge, Mr. 
Durham sauntered forth with his gun. 
Saunter is the right word for the lunch had 
been bountiful and Mr. Durham was in a 
restful mood. He proceeded slowly through 
woods and across fields and presently he 
came to a large pine tree in the full sun- 
light. It was one of those winter days when 
basking in the sun is delicious. A hummock 
of grass at the foot of the pine had an in- 
viting look. Mr. Durham sat down on it, 
laid his gun on the ground beside him, 
leaned back against the tree and fell asleep. 

He doesn't know how long his nap lasted ; 
perhaps an hour. When he awoke, there a 
few feet in front of him was a wild turkey, 
a hen, and she had with her a flock of 
nearly-grown young turkeys. They were all 
around the pine tree. Mr. Durham counted 
eleven besides the mother. 

"Mj' first thought was that I'd rather 
have a camera than a gun," he told a friend 
when he came home at nightfall. "It was a 
fine picture. I wanted a big gobbler and 
looked around for one. But there wasn't 
any there, so I shot what looked like the 
biggest of the young gobblers."

B. C. Holds Annual Banquet 

Floyd Goodrich, head of the sales division 
of B. C. Eemedy Company and Secretary- 
Treasurer of the T. M. A., presided over 
the annual banquet given by B. C. at the 
Washington Duke Hotel, Durham, on Janu- 
ary 2. The banquet was followed by a 
dance attended by the salesmen, their wives 
and a number of invited guests. 

Carl Goereh, Ealeigh publisher and radio 
commentator, delivered the principal ad- 
dress. He praised the sales representatives 
of the B. C. Eemedy Company for their 
spirit of cooperation which saw the firm's 
business considerably increased during the 
past year. Goereh interrupted his talk long 
enough to conduct a brief quiz among the 
women at the banquet. Mrs. Donnie A. 
Sorrell was winner of the quiz and received 
a prize of $10. 

C. T. Council, president of the company, 
welcomed the visitors. Floyd Goodrich an- 
nounced the loss of Harold Garlack of 
Cleveland, Ohio, from the sales organization 
because of military service and declared 
that the company is proud that he has been 
drafted for service. Assurance was given 
that Garlack is expected back at his job 
upon conclusion of his year of military

New Lilly Vitamin Product 

Eli Lilly and Company recently made an 
interesting contribution to vitamin therapy 
by adding to the list Gelseals "Multicebrin" 
(Pan-Vitamins, Lilly). Accordingly to the 
literature, one gelseal contains an average 
daily prophylactic dose of all the recog- 
nized water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamin 
fractions. The formula is based on authen- 
tic information concerning the optimal daily 
requirement of the patient who manifests 
no symptoms of vitamin deficiency. On the 
basis of standardized units, Gelseals "Mul- 
ticebrin" are low in cost. Packaged in bot-

Popularity of Miles Program 

The highest Crossley rating in its history 
is now chalked up for the Alka Seltzer Na- 
tional Barn Dance, radio program spon- 
sored by Miles Laboratories of Elkhart, 

To date, the rating is 17.1. 

The program hit an all-time high a few 
weeks ago when it reached 16.2. Since then 
it has raised consistently to 16.9 and the 
present 17.1. The spurt has been particu- 
larly strong since September 24 when the 
rating was 13.7. 

The Alka Seltzer National Barn Dance is 
in its eighth consecutive year of broadcast. 
It features a cast of more than fifty enter- 
tainers including the Hoosier Hot Shots, 
novelty instrumentalists ; Joe Kelly, master 
of ceremonies; Eddie Peabody, ban joist; 
and Pat Buttram, humorist. 

The program is broadcast each Saturday 
evening at eight o'clock (CST) over the red 
network of the National Broadcasting Com- 

"Chiseling Consumers" 

The Maryland Fair Trade Bulletin has 
this to say about a certain type of consumer : 

"Chiseling consumers exist in greater 
numbers than chiseling retailers. Only they 
call themselves 'shrewd shoppers', or 'I 
got it for 2c less'. No matter Avhat they 
are called, their mere existence is a disrupt- 
ing factor in the enforcement of Fair 
Trade. They use every device short of 
strong arm methods to avoid paying the 
price which the clerk asks and even though 
they never buy anywhere else they always 
insist the competitor sells it for less. 

"When this type of person threatens to 
walk out, a retailer is sorely tempted to 
drop his price rather than chance the loss 
of the sale. The lesson or price mainte- 
nance must be learned, because once the 
storekeeper cuts, the chiseler will never 
again want to pay his first price. In other 
words, every time you cut your price, you 
are cutting your own throat. In the long 
run, the druggist is the loser. His profits 
will dwindle and his standards Avill be 

lowered. Be firm. Don't hurt yourself. 
Maintain your just and living profit." 

The Story of Unguentine — 1941 

Norwich Pharmacal Company has con- 
tracted for increased space in a large num- 
ber of leading national magazines during 
1941 to carry their new Unguentine adver- 
tisementa, "The Flaming Finger," to mil- 
lions of readers. 

Commenting from a recent issue of the 
Norwich Percolate: "It is interesting to 
note that pointing hands are one of the 
most fundamental devices in the whole field 
of advertising. The earliest road signs em- 
ployed the device of a pointing finger. One 
of the commonest type ornaments in every 
job print shop is a pointing hand." "We 
get the benefit of this elementary value in 
our new symbol, and yet it is entirely new 
and original because it also looks like flame. 
Thus, 'The Finger of Fire' works for us 
doubly — not only pointing the way to im- 
mediate Unguentine sales, but burning it- 
self in the memory for future sales of Un- 
guentine — next week, next month, next 
year ! " 

"The public will not be allowed to miss 
seeing 'The Flaming Finger' nor will they 
be allowed to forget it. All that we ask our 
good friends, the druggists of America, is 
that they keep Unguentine displays in full 
view on counters, shelves and windows 
throughout all twelve months of 1941. The 
public needs Unguentine — and needs only 
the constant reminder to buy it. That's 
the business of 'The Flaming Hand.' It's 
a helping hand and a winning hand for all 
of us!" 

Goode Surveys Retail Drug Trade 

J. A. Goode of Asheville, Avho represents 
the retail drug trade, both independent and 
chain, on the Retail Advisory Committee to 
the National Defense Advisory Commission, 
is working on a survey of the business of 
retail stores, particularly respecting prices 
of manufacturers to retail druggists, so as 
to have the facts clearly established as soon 
as possible and afford a check against prices 
to druggists which cannot be passed on the 
public without the charge of "profiteering."

Our Modern Methods of Contraception 

S. W. McFalls of Greensboro 

"Mechanical methods of contraception 
have been employed from time immemorial, 
and today they are still among the most 
widely used measures for the prevention of 
conception." — Hannah H, Stone.^ 

In this paper I am going to explain our 
present-day mechanical devices that are used 
in contraception, and shall take up along 
with the different diaphragms our modern 
jellies and their characteristics. 

The Vaginal Diaphragm: This method of 
contraception has been deemed most satis- 
factory by the birth control centers during 
recent years, that is, in conjunction with a 
contraceptive jelly. Although this cimbined 
method does not meet with all requirements 
it is the best available at present and is 
prescribed by a large per cent of contra- 
ceptive authorities. 

There are many differences as to the 
technique of its use, although it has a vast 
distribution. The occlusive diaphragm, as 
many do not know, is not a recent discovery 
nor has it been only recently used. In 
many books on histories of contraception 
one can find articles explaining primitive 
tj^es of vaginal diaphragms. However, the 
modern form as we have today was first 
introduced in 1882 by Dr. Wilhelm Men- 
singer of Flensburg and is still referred to 
as the Mensinger pessary. 

Later Drs. Aletta Jacobs and Johannes 
Rutgers of Holland first began to teach 
this method. Several decades thereafter it 
was adopted in England and other Euro- 
pean countries. 

Margaret Sanger was the first to intro- 
duce the diaphragm in America.^ She 
studied birth control in Holland observing 
the work of Dr. Rutgers and brought the 
diaphragm to America, and when she es- 
tablished the Birth Control Research Bu- 
reau, the first Birth Control Clinic in Ameri- 
ca, in 1923, the diaphragm was used as the 
chief method by this clinic. Other clinics 
have since then adopted the diaphragm 
method and it has been widely used through- 
out this country. Of the 65,000 women who 
have received contraceptic advice at the 

Bureau over 80 per cent of them have been 
fitted with a vaginal diaphragm. 

How To Fit: In fitting the diaphragm 
several conditions have to be considered; 
the size to prescribe, the type and the 
method of administering. The only means 
of procuring a perfect fit is by a thorough 
gynecological examination and studying the 
condition of the pelvic organs. 

Types: There is a variation in types, 
shapes, in depth, character of rubber, and 
in the thickness and tension of the spring. 
The shape may be either circular or S- 
curved; the depth may vary from one to 
two inches, so that the dome is either high 
and rounded like a hemisphere, or shallow 
and saucer shaped; the rubber may be thick 
or thin, rough or smooth, opaque, translu- 
cent or transparent. The rim may consist 
of either a narrow steel watch-spring, or of 
a spiral spring of piano Avire. It may vary 
from an eighth to a quarter of an inch in 
thickness. In either case, the spring is well 
protected by the layers of rubber which 
cover it all around and one variety of 
diaphragm now has a rim encased com- 
pletedly in a rubber tubing. 

Size: Vaginal diaphragms come in twenty 
different sizes, ranging from 45 to 105 mm. 
in diameter. In selecting the proper size 
two factors have to be taken into consider- 
ation; the depth of the vagina and the tone 
of its musculature. Two women, not infre- 
quently, with the same vaginal dimensions 
in millimeters may require different size 
diaphragms because of a marked difference 
in muscle tone. At many times several 
diaphragms have to be tried before a suit- 
able one is definitely chosen. How the dia- 
phragms should fit in the vagina leads to 
many differences in opinion, however Haire 
states that the pessary should fit obliquely 
in the vagina and should lie almost trans- 
versely across the upper part of the vaginal 
canal.* For this usually a 50 to 65 mm. size 
is selected. The sizes most frequently pre- 
scribed range from 70 to 85 mm, A seven- 
ty-five millimeter size was the most fre- 
quent single size prescribed in a survey 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


held by a Baltimore Birth Control Clinic* 
When the size prescribed is either too small 
or too large, the pessary may lose its pro- 
tective value. If it is too small, it does 
not reach the front part of the vagina, and 
may be easily dislodged during coitus. If it 
is too large, it comes too far forward, and 
sometimes may even project from the 
vagina. In either case it is not held in 
place well and may sag down. When this 
sagging occurs the male organ may pass 
over the rim, nullifying the protective value 
of the diaphragm. Too large a pessary may 
also cause considerable discomfort. 

Placement of Pessary: The pessary may 
be placed before retiring or just before 
intercourse takes place, which of course de- 
pends on the preference of the individual. 
The spermicidal effect of the jellies lasts 
many hours after insertion. 

Time of E^moval : As a general rule the 
woman is advised to have the diaphragm 
stay in place until the next morning. She 
may, however, remove it immediately after 
coitus if she prefers, providing a thorough 
douche is taken first. From a physiological 
and psychological viewpoint it is not ad- 
visable to rise immediately after intercourse 
for douching purposes, but if the woman 
so desires she may do it without affecting 
the efficacy of the method.'^ On the other 
hand the diaphragm may be left in for a 
longer period. In a ease M'here the woman 
is unable to fit a pessary herself and it is 
placed by a doctor at a clinic, the pessaries 
are allowed to remain for a period as long 
as a week. If bj' examination no abnormal 
conditions such as injurj' to the pelvic re- 
gion results the pessaries are even allowed 
to remain a still longer time between visits 
to the doctor. 

The Douche : As a general rule the pa- 
tient is advised to douche with about one 
quart of plain or soapy warm water before 
removing the diaphragm and then douche 
with another quart after its removal. The 
object of the douche is to wash away any 
living spermatozoa whicli may still be pres- 
ent in the vaginal tract. It is the general 
consensus of opinion, however, that the 
spermatozoa can remain alive in the vagina 
for only a few hours. Hence it would seem 
that since the pessary has been left in place 

for about twelve hours after intercourse 
it may safely be removed without douching. 
In other words if no douching facilities are 
available, or if the woman does not wish to 
take the douche for one reason or another, it 
may be omitted entirely providing the dia- 
phragm is left in place at least twelve hours 
after exposure. 

Care of Diaphragm: After use the dia- 
phragm should be cleaned with soap and 
water, dried thoroughly on both sides, dusted 
with talcum or corn starch an placed in its 
container. Vaseline or other greasy sub- 
stances should not be applied to the dia- 
phragm as they tend to spoil the rubber. 
With proper care a diaphragm made by a 
reliable concern will last for some two years, 
and its use therefore constitutes a rather 
inexpensive measure for the prevention of 

Substitutes for Circular Diaphragms: 

1. Eubber Cervix Caps — This consists of 
an inflated rubber ring to which a thin, 
cup-like rubber pouch is attached. The ring 
is designed to fit snugly around the base of 
the cervix and to adhere to it by suction, 
while the pouch forms a covering over the 
part of the cervix that projects into the 
vagina. This cap comes in three different 
sizes small, medium, and large. 

2. Curved Diaphragms — This is employed 
where the circular diaphragm is inadequate. 
It is known commercially as the Duraflex. 
This type of pessary is shaped like an S and 
is especially useful in cases of cysto-recto- 
celes.'' A serious disadvantage of this type 
of pessary is that it has been rather difficult 
for the woman to fit it correctly, but if the 
right technique is applied it is a very suc- 
cessful substitute for the circular dia-

Three Quarters of a Century for Parke, 
Davis & Company 

The year 1941 marks the Diamond Anni- 
versary of the founding^ of Parke, Davis & 
Company, a firm which had its inception in a 
small drug store in the City of Detroit, 
Michigan, and which, during the past seven- 
ty-five years, has become the world's largest 
makers of pharmaceutical and biological 

From the very beginning, back in 1866, 
Parke, Davis & Company has engaged in re- 
search work with the object of making avail- 
able to pharmacists and physicians, medici- 
nal preparations of the highest degree of 

In the early 70's, pharmaceutical prog- 
ress meant the discovery of new' vegetable 
drugs. Energetic — and extensive — explora- 
tions gave to the medical profession such 
valuable and widely used drugs as Cascara 
and Coca. Then, in 1879, came one of 
Parke-Davis's greatest contributions to 
pharmacy and medicine — the introduction of 
the first chemically standardized extract 
known to pharmacy. Desiccated Thyroid 
Gland, the first endocrine product supplied 
by the Company, was introduced in 1893. 
One year later, Parke-Davis established the 
first commercial biological laboratory in the 
United States. In 1897 came the introduc- 
tion of the first physiologically assayed and 
standardized extracts. And throughout 
these early years, the fundamental Parke- 
Davis policy — precision in pharmaceutical 
manufacture — was crystallizing. 

Since the turn of the century, progress of 
the Company has continued apace. An ag- 
gressive program of research has been zeal- 
ously pursued, marked by the introduction 
of such important medicinal products as 
Adrenalin, Ventriculin, Theelin, Pitocin, 
Pitressin, Mapharsen, Neo-Silvol, Antuitrin- 
S, Meningococcus Antitoxin, Dilantin So- 
dium, and many others. Diversified research 
activities cover the major phases of medi- 
cal treatment — including the endocrine, bio- 
logical, vitamin, and chemotherapeutic — 

and new discoveries are carefully evaluated 
through the Company's extensive facilities 
for clinical investigation. 

The Company's home offices and research 
and manufacturing laboratories in Detroit 
occupy six city blocks on the Detroit River- 
front, adjacent to the Detroit-Walkerville 
ferry, which connects the City of Detroit 
with the Province of Ontario, Canada. 

A beautiful farm of 700 acres, known as 
Parkedale and located near Rochester, 
Michigan, about 30 miles from Detroit, is 
utilized for the production of antitoxins, 
serums and vaccines, and for the cultivation 
of medicinal plants. 

In addition to its Detroit headquarters, 
branches and depots are maintained in im- 
portant cities throughout the country, the 
list including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, 
Buffalo, Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Denver, 
Indianapolis, Kansas City, Minneapolis, New 
Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, 
San Francisco, St. Louis, and Seattle. 

In the foreign field, to care for the Parke- 
Davis business which extends to every quar- 
ter of the globe, branches are located in 
London, England; Sydney, N. S. W. ; Wal- 
kerville, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; Toron- 
to, Ontario ; Winnipeg, Manitoba ; Bombay, 
India; Havana, Cuba; Buenos Aires, Argen- 
tina; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Mexico 
City, Mexico. 

Through the use of full pages in leading 
national magazines Parke, Davis & Com- 
pany are carrying on an advertising pro- 
gram that has attracted wide attention. As 
might be expected, their advertising is 
unique, ethical, distinctive. They make no 
direct attempt to sell their products to the 
public by means of this publicity. In a 
sincere effort to render a valuable service 
to the medical profession, they are running 
a striking series of messages based on the 
"See Your Doctor" theme, and physicians 
throughout the country are constantly ex- 
periencing evidences of the results of this 
broad educational program.

January Report of Charlotte, N. C. 

Druggist Auxiliary- 
Mrs. Philip Yau Every, Corresponding 

"Time Takes All But Memories." 

Nineteen Hundred and Forty One! 

It doesn't seem possible, does it! We en- 
gaged a room at the S. & W. Cafeteria and 
held our first meeting this year, January 
14th. We were all in a gay humor and glad 
to be together again. 

Despite a recent illness, our president, 
Mrs. T. N. Edwards, was her usual peppy 
self, driving us on to be outstanding in our 
club work and making us love it. 

Mrs. D. L. Wheeler, our vice-president, 
distributed our year books at our last meet- 
ing, and we needs must stop here to com- 
pliment her on an outstanding job. They 
are lovely; bound with beautiful colored 
backs and tied with bright ribbons. We 
really felt we were receiving a wonderful 
Christmas present during our December 
meeting when Mrs. Wheeler presented them 
to us. 

When you open one book, on the very 
first page you see our object: 

"To interest and encourage qualified wo- 
men to concern themselves more actively 
with the annual convention of the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association, and to 
foster a closer friendship with each other, 
in the mutual interest of our husbands." 

On the second page is the collect of club 
women of America. "Keep us, O God, from 
pettiness; let us be large in thought, in 
word, in deed. 

"Let us be done with fault-finding and 
leave off self-seeking. May we put away all 
pretense and meet each other face to face, 
without self-pity and without prejudice. May 
we never be hasty in judgment and always 

"Teach us to put into action our better 
impulses straightforward and unafraid. 

"Let us take time for all things; make 
us grow calm, serene and gentle. 

"Grant that we may realize that it is the 
little things that create differences; that in 
the big things of life we are as one. And 
may we strive to touch and to know the 
great common woman's heart of us all ; and 

Lord God, let us not forget to be kind. 
Amen." — Mary Stewart, Colorado. 

Everytime I read that prayer, it touches, 
me very deeply, and makes me resolve all 
over again to be a better person, so I had 
to pass it on to you. 

Next month, I will tell you of our Valen- 
tine party. We are planning to entertain 
our husbands at their expense and have a 
"wonnerful" time. 

Our state president, Mrs. John K. Civil, 
gave us quite an interesting talk on the 
history of our fair town, Charlotte. And 
I'm sure it will amaze you to know there 
were only five native born Charlotteans pres- 
ent. How many of you know that our two 
principal streets, Tryon and Trade were 
named for Governors Tryon and Trade? I 
must confess I was ignorant. 

Mrs. Civil told us that she would leave 
for Asheville, N. C. Thursday, January 16th, 
where she would help organize a woman's 
auxiliary there. She will be the guest of 
Mrs. Lloyd Jarrett and will be honor guest 
at a tea. Asheville is a lovely place, and 
we are looking forward eagerly for the re- 
sults of that beginning. 

We had six new members. Think of it! 
All very young and so "prettee," Mrs. E. 
H. Hemmle, Mrs. A. K. Hardee, Mrs. George 
F. Bryant, Mrs. W. B. Holmes, and Mrs. 
A. P. Faulkner. Some of you must know- 
Mr. Faulkner. He travels East, West, North 
and South for The House of Lance. So he 
really gets around. 

Eye-Spied Items 

Mrs. D. C. Lisk, back sitting in her 
regular place. 

Mrs. Joe Monroe, looking orchidacious in 

Mrs. D. D. Demarest, who is a dead ringer 
for Ann Sheridan. 

Mrs. J. A. Austin, looking booful in light 

Mrs. J. G. Barnette made a fetching pic- 
ture witli licr red hair, blue dress and hat. 

Now I want to tell you something nice Ave 
did last meeting; we passed around a plate 
and took up a collection of $5.00 and gave 
it to the Empty Stocking Fund here. 

So I'm in favor of a Druggists Auxiliary 
in every town. They certainly stand for 
much in a community, as well as bringing 
lots of pleasure to each individual member.

The 1941 General Assembly 

Convening on Januaiy 8th, 1941, the Gen- 
eral Assembly of North Carolina, at the time 
this is written (January 20th) has been in 
session 12 days. It is, of course, too early 
to hazard predictions either as to the length 
of the session or as to what measures will 
be offered effecting the druggists of the 
State. However, those of us in Raleigh 
who are onlookers have heard no small num- 
ber of Legislators express themselves that 
it was their feeling that there would be but 
few controversial issues before the Legisla- 
ture and that it should be able to finish its 
work and adjourn at the end of 60 or 65 

When the 1939 Legislature enacted its 
Revenue Bill as a permanent one, the ques- 
tion immediately rose in the minds of many 
as to whether or not succeeding Legislatures 
would adhere thereto. Fortunately, the Di- 
rector of the Budget and the Advisory Bud- 
get Commission did observe this mandate ; 
instead of re-writing the Revenue Bill, as 
heretofore, only a few amendments were 
made by this body. The Budget Revenue 
Bill of 1941, House Bill 11, was introduced 
on the 7th day of the session. No changes 
whatever have been recommended in the 
sections effecting retail druggists, under 
Schedule B of the Act levying privilege 

The Budget Commission did submit an 
amendment to the Sales Tax Law, Article 5, 
Schedule E of the proposed Revenue Bill, 
extending the exemption on food products. 
The present Revenue Act exempts from the 
3% Sales Tax only a limited number of 
foods while the proposed Act exempts all 
food products for human consumption from 
the 3% Sales Tax. 

The Finance Committee of both the House 
and Senate have already had three or four 
joint meetings and have adopted tentatively 
the recommendations made by the Budget 

Commission witli respect to our Schedule B's 
Taxes. Before it adopts the Sales Tax Ar- 
ticle, however, hearings will be held. 

In this connection it must be borne in 
mind that even though the Revenue Act is a 
permanent one, at the same time any Legis- 
lator in the House or Senate may offer an 
independent bill at any time amending it, 
either to increase, reduce any of the taxes 
imposed or to add new taxes or repeal any 
tax already imposed. 

The Legislative program to be sponsored 
by our Association has not yet been decided 
upon. The Executive and Legislative Com- 
mittees, and the Board of Pharmacy is to 
have a joint meeting January 23rd at which 
time it will determine the measures the As- 
sociation will undertake to get enacted into 

For several years past we have had from 
two to four pharmacist members of the 
Legislature. This session we have but one 
in the person of Dr. R. T. Fulghum, repre- 
senting Johnston County in the House for 
the third term. Mr. Fulghum at all times has 
the best interest and works untiringly in 
behalf of his fellow pharmacists. 

We are publishing below the names of the 
three Committees from both the House and 
Senate, to which will be referred most of 
the bills effecting our organization.

Sweeten Your Profits by Metchandis- 
ing the Candy Department 

A. D. Pollard 

Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentleman : I 
am very glad of this opportunity to be back 
in Asheville among my friends and am 
highly honored to have a part in this Mer- 
chandising Clinic sponsored by your Asso- 
ciation. I feel this is one of the finest 
things the Association has done in the 
years since I have been affiliated Avith it 
through the T. M. A. 

As your program shows, Mr. Smith, your 
secretary, has allotted me one hour to dis- 
cuss the subject of merchandising your 
candy department. The talk which I have 
prepared reminds me of the story I heard 
I'ecently: It is like the girl's dress, short 
enough to be interesting but long enough 
to cover the subject. 

Speaking of candy merchandising, I be- 
lieve that you will be interested to know the 
amount of candy produced and consumed in 
the U. S. during 1939: Production for 1939 
amounted to two billion, eight hundred and 
ten million, eight hundred and thirty-three 
thousand pounds. The manufacturers' sales 
value of this amount was three hundred and 
eight million, six hundred and sixteen thou- 
sand dollars at an average price of 14.8 cents 
per pound, with a consumption average of 
15.9 pounds per person. The fancy package 
goods, which is the bulk of your business, 
amounted to one per cent of the total. 
Fancy package goods in dollars and cents 
amounted to $10,414,078. These figures, 
gentlemen, are quoted to show you what 
a market there is for fancy package can- 

At this time I will endeavor to emphasize 
the merchandising ideas which ^vill help 
you to get your share of this business : 

1. The outside of your store should be 
identified by signs on your windows and dis- 
plays should be installed in your windows 
at frequent intervals, especially during holi- 
day periods. 

2. People unconsciously respond to well- 
arranged displays in your store. This is 
especially true of your candy department. 
You can maintain a colorful, pleasant and 
interesting atmosphere in your store by 

proper display of your candy. Goods can 
be sold, store prestige can be enhanced by 
giving a few minutes of your time each day 
to this department. 

3. It is generally conceded that the best 
way to really sell candy is' by open display, 
preferably located in a prominent part of 
the store. A spotless and well illuminated 
display is a good advertising feature and 
makes it easier for the purchaser to buy. 

4. The sales person must be sold on the 
line of candy carried and thus passes on his 
or her enthusiasm to the prospective custo- 
mer. In this way the sales person is enabled 
to make many candy sales which would 
otherwise be lost. 

5. A knowledge of the merchandise is 
most important. Customer satisfaction is 
created by a knowledge of the goods which 
you are selling — a sales person should be 
familiar with the process of manufacture 
so that he can create interest by being able 
to discuss the outstanding points of the 
finished package. 

6. For best results locate your candy de- 
partment at a heavy traffic point in your 
store where it will be in reach of each adult 
customer. Eye level displays create more 
candy sales than any other type. 

7. Advertise your candy department. This 
may be done by using newspaper mats in 
your local papers, postal cards for a per- 
sonal mailing list or handbills for your 
monthly statements. After this has been 
done the surest way to capitalize on this 
advertising is to have a sales contest be- 
tween your clerks, either by PM or monthly 

Quoting from a man who has been very 
successful in selling candy and Avhose retail 
sales amounted to more than $6,000.00 last 
year: "I have found through attractive in- 
terior and Avindow displays that candy can 
be sold with the least resistance and that 
often many new sales are created by the 
display. When we have a candy display 
in our window our sales increase approxi- 
mately 200%. This we attribute to the fact 
that the customer is familiar with the candy 
and is reminded of it at the point of sale." 

Gentlemen, as you realize, candy is a full 
priced item in your store and is one of the

A Pharmacy Investment 

By Dean J. Allen Reese 

What is the best single investment a pharmacist can make ? Which one 
will pay him the greatest dividends ? In my opinion there is but one answer : 
membership in his state and national associations. The status of no pro- 
fession has improved as much as pharmacy in the last ten years. This has 
been brought about by the combined efforts of the pharmacists of this country, 
not by the efforts of any lone individual. 

If there had not been state and national associations, do you think for a 
moment that pharmacists would be given professional status by the Personal 
Classification of the United States Civil Service Commission ? Do you believe 
that pharmacists would receive commissions in the U. S. Army ? That pharma- 
cists would be employed in Public Health Service, Alcohol Administration, 
the Bureau of Narcotics, the Food and Drug Administration, the Veterans' 
Administration and other positions of equal importance? Would there have 
been any Fair Trade Laws? 

There is one sure wa}' for a pharmacist to develop a real appreciation 
of his state and national associations and that is to take a few minutes and 
picture in his mind the position that pharmacy would occupj^ without these 
organizations. Who would want to attempt to practice the profession under 
these conditions? 

The late Dr. Crockett always considered membership dues in our organi- 
zations as insurance payments for the protection of the profession against 
the ravages of outside forces and for the purpose, of cementing the bonds 
from within. In my opinion these payments constitute the best insurance 
we can have. 

Every pharmacist should consider it not only a privilege but a duty to 
be an active member of his state pharmaceutical association and at least one 
national pharmaceutical organization. — K. P. Neivs.

Friends of Dean J. G. Beard will be glad to know he has returned to Chapel Hill

The gentlemen pictured above are two of North Carolina's most progressive pharma- 
cists. On the left is P. L. Thomas, son of pharmacist E. E. Thomas of Erwin. The 
professionally attired pharmacist on the right is C. H. Oakley, who, with Mr. Thomas, 
jointly owns and operates the Thomas and Oakley Drug Store in Eoxboro. The prescrip- 
tion department, fully equipped and modern in every respect, is a credit to the ability 
and hard work of these two young pharmacists.

Durham Convention 

The following resolution presented at the 
1940 Charlotte Convention was referred to 
the Executive Committee by Boger Mc- 
Duffie, Chairman of the Eesolutions Com- 
mittee : 

Whereas, a three-day convention necessi- 
tates a druggist's being away from his busi- 
ness for too long a period of time, and 

Whereas, it is believed that all conven- 
tion business can be taken care of in two 
days, therefore 

Be it Besolved, that we return to the old 
plan of beginning the meetings with an 
evening session and concluding the conven- 
tion two days later. 

On January 31 the Executive Committee 
decided to favor the above resolution and 
voted to begin the Durham Convention on 
the night of May 13 (Begistration oi)cn at 
2:30 P.M.) and to close with the T. M. A. 
entertainment two davs later.

Retail Drug Institute Clicks 

Attendance at the meetings of the Eetail 
Drug Institute held in Greensboro, High 
Point, Burlington and Eeidsville to date 
has been good with a great deal of interest 
being manifested by the enrollees. Thus 
far two programs have been presented in 
each place (four in Greensboro) with six 
more scheduled for each town within the 
next six weeks. 

"Pharmaceutical Laws and R-egulations," 
with particular emphasis on the State and 
Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic acts, was 
the subject discussed by the instructor dur- 
ing the first two classes. Among the sub- 
jects to be considered on future programs 
are: "The New Psychologj' Applied to Sell- 
ing," "Modern Drug Store Merchandising," 
"Vitamins," "Dental Medicine," "Sources of 
Information for the Pharmacist," "Store 
Arrangement — 'Display" and "Promoting the 
Use of U. S. P. and N. F. Remedies." 

Excerpts from letters received from phar- 
macists participating in the classes : 

"While we have held but two sessions to 
date, I am firmly convinced that the Asso- 
ciation and the Board of Pharmacy are to 
be congratulated on their foresight in co- 
operating with the Department of Education 
in promoting this activity. We have for a 
number of j'ears needed something that 
would enable us to study our problems col- 
lectively under proper leadership. In this 
Drug Institute we have found what we 
needed. With the proper publicity it can 
educate the public to the fact that the 
pharmacist of North Carolina is a profes- 
sional man and not just a merchant. Too 
much importance cannot be attached to the 
proper publicity and regular attendance at 
tliese meetings." C. M. Andrews of Bur- 

"In my opinion, one of the most pro- 
gressive steps ever taken by organized phar- 
macy in North Carolina was the launching 
of the Retail Drug Institute. Drug store 
men are usually too busy to attend clinics 
or take refresher courses in college like 
other professional men. The Retail Drug 
Institute fills a much felt need in that it 
brings to the pharmacists of every com- 
munity in the state an instructor who is well 
qualified to diffuse worthwhile knowledge 
of matters pertaining to the retail drug 
business." Roger McDuffie of GTeensboro. 

"The Retail Drug Institute is offering the 
druggists of the State a real oportunity to 
acquaint themselves with the problems fac- 
ing them today and how to meet them. I 
believe, if the druggists will give their full 
co-operation in attendance and support, that 
much good will come of this movement." 
Wayne Russell of High Point. 

". . . from the first meeting there are 
already visible evidences of friendlier atti- 
tudes, better understandings and higher con- 
ceptions of duties and responsibilities.'' 
T. J. Ham, Jr., of Yanceyville. 

"Having read accounts of Retail Drug In- 
stitutes held in other sections of the coun- 
try, I was delighted to have an opportunity 
to attend the Institute at Reidsville under 
the capable leadership of Mr. Moose. At 
the first few meetings the new Food, Drug 
and Cosmetic Act has been the center of 
discussion. Although I had read this Act 
on several occasions, this was the first time 
that I had been able to understand many 
of its phases. These meetings offer an op- 
portunity for the druggists of this section 
to get together, discuss and solve many of 
their proldems, and I am looking forward to 
other meetings of this tyjie in the future."

as a means of making a living, drug store standards must be established and the number 
of drug stores must be limited to the population." (f) "Pharmacists will benefit by 
organizing and working together." (g) "Eefresher courses should be offered for practic- 
ing pharmacists to enable them to keep abreast of the time and help them to retain their 
interest, in their profession." (h) "Professional pharmacy is our only hope." (i) "Phar- 
macy is definitely gaining recognition as a profession." (j) "The pharmacy student 
should have some experience in taking prescriptions over the phone." 

1941 Honor Roll 

The names of the first 100 members to 
mail their Association dues to the Secretary- 
Treasurer were published in the February 
issue of the Journal. Since that time a 
number of additional payments have arrived 
but lack of space prevents our publishing 
the names of the contributors. 

Two members, Fred Eay, Jr., of Jones- 
boro and W. C. Wrike of Graham, paid their 
1941 dues last year. By error their names 
were omitted from the Honor Roll last 
month where they rightly belonged. 

The Association is doing everything in its 
power to fight adverse legislation in Ra- 
leigh, particularly the Wage and Hour Act 
which will wreck the drug business of this 
state if it is enacted into law. If you 
haven't mailed your dues check to date, 
please do so at once in order that the offi- 

cers of the Association may use their entire 
time to fight your battles in Raleigh. 

We are indebted to Pharmacist H. 0. 
Holland of Apex for the following poem: 


The druggist stood at the Pearly Gate, 
His face was worn and old. 
He meekly asked the man of Fate 
Admission to the fold. 

"What have you done," St. Peter asked, 
"To seek admittance here?" 
"Oh, I labored as a pharmacist 
On the Earth for many a year." 

The gate swung open sharply 

As Peter touched the bell. 

"Come in," he said, "And take a harp, 

You've had enough of Hell."

The Thirty-fourth Annual Meeting of 

the American Druggists' Fire 

Insurance Company 

The Annual Stockholders and Directors 
Meeting of the A. D. F. I. Company was 
held in Cincinnati on February 11th and 
12th. Because of the illness of some of 
the Board of Directors there was less than 
the usual number of shares of the Stock of 
the Company represented at the Meeting, 
hut there was well over a majority repre- 

During the year 1940 the Company ex- 
perienced 657 losses which is more than for 
any other one year during the history of the 
Company, but fortunately many of these 
losses were comparatively small so that the 
net result to the Company was a little less 
than for 1939. 

On January 1st, 1941, the A. D. F. I. 
Company had Capital and Surplus over all 
Eeserves of $1,924,750.12 with Unearned 
Premiums or Ee-Insurance Reserve amount- 
ing to $223,201.03, shomng total available 
Surplus and Eeserves for the protection of 
policyholders of $2,147,951.15. 

At the Annual Meeting, the Board of 
Directors declared a dividend of 10% on 
the par value of the Stock, to Stockholders 
of record on February 12th, payable on 
March 1st. 

The Stockholders at their Annual Meet- 
ing elected the following Directors: James 
H. Beal of Cocoa, Florida ; Edw. W. Stucky 
of Indianapolis, Indiana ; William C. An- 
derson of Brooklyn, New York; G. 0. 
Young of Buckhaunon, West Virginia ; J. S. 
Rutledge of Akron, Ohio; Edward Voss, Jr., 
of Cincinnati, Ohio; John Weisel of Mon- 
roe, Michigan; Samuel C. Davis of Nash- 
ville, Tennessee; Walter Rothwell of Hat- 
boro, Pennsylvania; P. J. Suttlemyre of 
Hickory, North Carolina; C. S. Heimstreet 
of Lake Mills, Wisconsin ; H. M. Lerou of 
Norwich, Connecticut ; Jos. A. Hettinger of 
Chicago, Illinois; J. Otto Kohl of Cin- 
cinnati, Ohio and W. P. Starkey of Cin- 
cinnati, Ohio. 

The Board of Directors elected tlie fol- 
lowing Officers for the ensuing year: James 
H. Beal, President ; G. O. Young, Vice-Presi- 
dent; W. P. Starkey, Secretary; Walter 
Rothwell, Treasurer; Edward Voss, Jr., 

Assistant Treasurer and David P. Pickrel, 
General Counsel. 

On Tuesday evening, February 11th the 
visiting Officers, Directors and Stockholders, 
together with many of the local Stock- 
holders, met at tlie Cincinnati Club at a 
Memorial Dinner in memory of Frank H. 
Freericks who from the beginning of the 
Company until his death the latter part of 
January, served in the capacity of Secretary 
and General Counsel. Brief memorial talks 
were made by J. Otto Kohl representing 
the National Association of Retail Drug- 
gists, Melvin Reid of the Ohio State Phar- 
maceutical Association, Harry Schmuelling 
of the Cincinnati Veteran Apothecaries As- 
sociation and Gilbert Kurz, President of 
the Ohio Valley Druggists' Association. In 
the absence of President Beal, Senator G. 
O. Young of West Virginia was Master of 
Ceremonies. A brief biography of Mr. Free- 
ricks was presented by newly elected Gen- 
eral Counsel, David P. Pickrel and a Trib- 
ute was added by W. P. Starkey for those 
in the Home Office who for many years had 
been closely associated with Mr. Freericks. 
The occasion was one which will linger long 
in the memories of those present.

This is written on February 17, 1941, and 
the Legislature has been in session fortj'- 
one daj's. All indications still point to one 
of the shortest Legislative Sessions that 
North Carolina has had in more than a de- 
cade. Withal, however, there is reasonable 
probability that fights may develop on some 
of the major pending legislation, such as 
appropriations, the raising of additional 
revenue to meet same, wage and hour meas- 
ures, workman's compensation law, reappor- 
tionment or restricting bill, statewide refer- 
endum proposal, etc., that may result in a 
much longer session than is now anticipated. 

In previous Legislatures both the Finance 
and Appropriations Bills have been intro- 
duced simultaneously. This time, the Fi- 
nance Committee has completed its work 
on the Budget Eevenue Bill, introduced it 
and the bill has passed its three successive 
readings in the Lower House and has been 
sent to the Senate. This body is expected to 
rush it through its three successive read- 
ings, as did the House so that this important 
Legislation will be enacted and out of the 

The Appropriations Bill is expected to be 
introduced in the House and passed dur- 
ing the week. It is noAV felt that the 
revenue provided in the pending Eevenue 
Bill will be sufficient to take care of the 
appropriations made. If this situation re- 
mains it is unlikely that further tax pro- 
posals will be offered. If otherwise, addi- 
tional tax increases and perhaps new tax 
proposals will be submitted in order to 
balance the budget. 

Legislation now pending of greatest im- 
portance to retail druggists are the Wage 
and Hour Bills (3 in number) and the pro- 
posed Compensation Law. The Wage and 
Hour Bill that will receive the strongest sup- 
port is the one that has been recommended 
by a majority of the members of the Fair 

Labor Standards Commission, provided for 
by the 1939 General Assembly and appointed 
by Gov. Hoey. This measure has been en- 
dorsed by the present governor. It pro- 
vides simply the striking out of the ex- 
emptions contained in the 1939 Act. The 
number of tliis bill is S. B. 127— H. B. 304, 
introduced in the Senate by Senator Clark 
of Bladen and in the House by Eepresenta- 
tive McEachern of Hoke, and was referred 
to Labor Committees of the House and 
Senate respectively, of which these two 
gentlemen are chairmen. A public hearing 
will be lield before these Committees meet- 
ing jointly, but the date at this time has not 
been set. Your officers will expend every 
effort in trying to get an exemption to the 
bill protecting retail drug stores. 

The proposed compensation law places all 
stores Avith five or more employees under 
this Act. As the laAv now stands retail es- 
tablishments with seven employees and less 
are exempted. 

All County Chairmen have been written 
some two or three times with respect to the 
proposed Prophylactic Bill which we hope to 
have introduced in the Legislature soon. 
Likewise, copies of the bill have been fur- 
nished the Officers and County Chairmen. 
These have been asked to contact not only 
their respective Eepresentatives and Sena- 
tors, but thej' have been urged to get their 
local physicians, health officers and welfare 
officers and druggists of their county to see 
their Eepresentatives concerning this pro- 
posed legislation. It is obvious that the bill 
can not be enacted if it is proposed and 
sponsored only by retail pharmacists, since 
under the bill sales are limited to retail 
drug stores. Considerable ground work has 
been done in behalf of the measure in Ea- 
leigh and the reaction has been in some 
degree favorable. We shall continue this 
work until we think the time is ripe to have 
it introduced. It must be borne in mind

Scott Drug Company Celebrates Half 
a Century of Service 

On March 5, 1941, the Scott Drug Com- 
pany of Charlotte will celebrate a half cen- 
tury of service to the retail druggists of 
North and South Carolina. The editors of 
the Carolina Journal, op Pharmacy join 
with the many friends and customers of 
Scott Drug Company throughout the Caro- 
linas in saluting this progressive wholesale 
drug house. 

Eeprodueed below is part of a sketch on 
the "History of the Scott Drug Company" 
which appeared in the October, 1925, issue 
of the Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy: 

"Before 1891 there was not an exclusively 
wholesale drug house in the Carolinas. 
'Wholesale and Retail' was the slogan in 
those good old days. While working the 
retail 'country trade' for Wilson and Bur- 
well, 'Wholesale and Retail Druggists,' John 
M. Scott began to dream dreams of a busi- 
ness which would be strictly wholesale — 
that would distribute druggists' sundries, 
pharmaceuticals and everything carried by 
the most up to date retail stores, and that 
would have salesmen covering both the Caro- 
linas. In those days that was a most 
ambitious dream, but results have shown 
that 'He builded better than he knew.' 

"In March, 1891, Mr. Scott formed a 
$10,000 partnership with the late R. H. 
Jordan and launched upon the business sea 
under the name of Jordan and Scott, the 
first exclusively wholesale drug house in the 
Carolinas. From this very modest beginning 
the business grew from year to year. In 
1900 Mr. Jordan retired from the firm and 
the establishment was incorporated under 
the name of John M. Scott and Co., with 
John M. Scott as president; Walter Scott, 
vice-president; and H. G. Harper, secretary 
and treasurer. The firm soon outgrew its 
quarters on Tryon Street and a large build- 
ing of its own was erected on South College 
Street. Following the death of Mr. Harper, 
the secretary-treasurer, in 1923, the business 
was again reorganized and a number of 
faithful employees taken into the company 
to share in its success and responsibilities. 
The name of the corporation was changed 
to the Scott Drug Company with Walter 
Scott, president; Zeb M. Moore and S. J. 
North, vice-presidents; E. M. Hannon, secre- 
tary-treasurer ; John M. Scott, chairman of 
the board of directors, which is composed 
of Jolm M. Scott, Walter Scott, Zeb M. 
Moore, S. J. North, E. M. Hannon, J. B. 
O'Bannon, W. L. Pierce, John W. Bennick 
and J. R. Henderson." 

Officers of the Scott Drug Company at 
the present time are : John M. Scott, Presi- 
dent; Walter Scott, Jr., Vice-President; E. 
M. Hannon, Sec'y & Treas. ; J. W. Bennick, 
Ass't Sec'y & Sales Manager and J. L. 
Fesperman, Ass't Treasurer. The sales 
force is composed of ten men: A. S. Mc- 
Cord, E. C. Cagle, Nick Schmitt, D. F. 
Norman, E. R. Mclntyre, A. M. Gwynn, L. 
C. Sappenfield, Horace Hovis, W. L. Dunn 
and William Ardrey. 

The University Pharmacy Senate 

Fred Dees, Jr. 

The Senate has just passed its first birth- 
day, having been organized in February, 
1940. At times it has been a hard fight to 
keep the organization going but through the 
interest and co-operation of students and 
faculty members, it has successfully sur- 
vived its first year. By the time this goes 
to press, w'e will have been recognized by 
University officials as an active campus or- 

The Winter Quarter activities have thus 
far brought forth the following interesting 
topics for discussion : "Detailing the Physi- 
cian by the Pharmacist"; "The Possible 
Success of Pharmacists in North Carolina" 
and "Policies in Pharmacy." The student 
members have presented these subjects very 
ably and the knowledge gained should prove 
of value in later years. 

An attractive key for the Senate has been 
selected and orders are now being accepted. 
Any alumni member of the Senate who 
graduated in good standing may obtain one 
of these keys by writing Bill Sheffield, 210 
Cameron Avenue, Chapel Hill. The price of 
the key will be $3.00. 

The constitution has been drawn up and 
approved by the Senate and each member 
has been presented a copy. 

As the Senate moves into its second year, 
its members are resolving to make it a more 
beneficial and practical organization in the 
future. Any suggestions made by Journal 
readers for improving the organization will 
lie gladly received.

Minimum Requirements for Prescription Department 
Effective January 1, 1941 

H. V. McAllister of Chapel Hill 

The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy at the November meeting in Chai>el Hill 
used the regulatory power granted it by the Act governing the practice of pharmacy 
to make a. regulation regarding the technical equipment of tieic drug stores to be opened 
after January 1st, 1941, as well as those changing ownership. 

This regulation pro\'ides that certain technical equipment or apparatus must be 
secured and maintained by the store before a permit shall be issued by the Secretary of the 
Board. Tliis has been found necessary in order to insure the public of properly com- 
pounded prescriptions in certain stores that open on the proverbial "shoestring." Such 
places have been found not to be properly equipped to render adequate prescription service. 

The adopted list of equipment does not enumerate all that is desirable but represents 
that which, in the opinion of the Board of Pharmacy, is essential. Those who contemplate 
opening a new store or assuming ownership of an established store should consider this 
regulation before making such a move. The required list is as follows :

tus listed below:

Parke, Davis Display Wins 
Top Award 

Back in the days of the Forty-niners, a 
pioneer pharmacist named Justin Gates left 
his California home town in a covered 
wagon, stocked with a variety of medicinal 
preparations, to assist physicians in their 
battle against disease that was rampant 
in the mining camps of the West. 

Taking the spirit of Pharmacist Gates as 
typical of that of his entire profession, 
Parke, Davis & Co. developed an unusually 
attractive window display illustrating an 
arrival of the covered wagon pharmacy at a 
mining camp during an epidemic when medi- 
cal supplies were badly needed. 

The unit was developed as a token of co- 
operation with the pharmaceutical profession 
for use during National Pharmacy Week, ob- 
served late in October of 1940. So success- 
ful was the display and so distinguished its 
design and rendition, that the unit has now 
won Top Award in the Window Displays 
division of the 10th annual All-America 
Package Competition, sponsored by Modern 
Packaging Magazine. 

Literally thousands of pharmacists upon 
seeing pictures of the display voluntarily 
made requisitions for same. After installa- 
tion, numerous pharmacists voluntarily 
wrote the company to express favorable 
comments regarding the attention the dis- 
play was creating among consumers. Nume- 
rous educators in various parts of the coun- 
try have written, seeking copies of the dis- 
play and many state and city museums have 
placed copies on exhibit, thus further demon- 
strating the effectiveness of the historical 
appeal here utilized. 

The display was designed by George H. 
Gift, and produced by the Thomas A. Schutz 

The award trophies will be officially pre- 
sented at the All-America Presentation Ban- 
quet to be held at the Stevens Hotel, Chi- 
cago, on April 2nd. 

1939 Drug Sales Up 

Retail Drug Sales in North Carolina dur- 
ing 1939 totaled $24,071,000 for an average 
of nearly $28,000 a store. 1939 business 
was 28 per cent ahead of 1935 but 4 per 
cent behind 1929. The average number of 
employees in the drug business during 1939 
was 3,752 as compared with a total of 2,957 
in 1929. 

The total pay roll amounted to $3,184,000 
in 1939; to $3,173,000 in 1929. Thus the 
average pay roll has decreased from $1,073 
in 1929 to $848 in 1939, Compensation of 
proprietors is not included in the pay-roll 
figures quoted above. 

Of the 26 North Carolina cities having a 
population of more than 10,000, Salisbury 
has the highest average volume of drug 
business with Gastonia trailing a close sec- 
ond. Greenville, ranking 26th, is at the 
bottom of the list. 

Reliable reports reaching this office indi- 
cate that business during 1940 topped the 
1939 figures considerably and every indica- 
tion at the present time points to continued 
business expansion during 1941. 

Trip to Eli Lilly and Company 

A party of students from the State Uni- 
versity School of Pharmacy will leave Dur- 
ham on March 18 for a visit to Eli Lilly 
laboratories of Indianapolis, Indiana. The 
students will be accompanied by a number 
of registered pharmacists and alumni of 
the School. While in Indianapolis they will 
be the guests of Eli Lilly and Company at 
one of the local hotels. 

The party will leave Durham at 1:45 P.M. 
on March. 18 and go by way of Lynchburg 
and Cincinnati to Indianapolis, arriving in 
that city at 10:10 A.M. on March 19. The 
return trip will be via "Queen City Special" 
scheduled to arrive in Durham at 3 : 40 P.M., 
March 22. Estimated cost of the entire 
trip (food, transportation, etc) is $22.70.

St. Valentine's Night in 
Charlotte, N. C. 

Mrs. Philip Van Every 
Corresponding Secretary 

Many sets were dancing at clubs and 
places Avliere people congregate to make 
gay on holidays, but of all the sentimental 
crowds who were celebrating St. Valen- 
tine's, the Charlotte Druggist Auxiliary 
along with their husbands were the happiest, 
most lighthearted, most sentimental and the 

We planned a grand party, but it turned 
out "grander" than that ! ! ! 

To begin with, the Eed Fez Club is a 
"yummy" place to have a dinner dance. 
Facing the Catawba river lends glamour 
to the place and inside is a huge (and I do 
mean huge) fireplace which makes you love 
it all at once. Mrs. John K. Civil, our 
state president, and Mrs. D. L. Wheeler re- 
ceived the guests. We had our dinner in the 
regular dining room which is in the base- 
ment; and it looked simply beautiful. In 
the center of the officers ' and honor guests ' 
table, Avas a large Valentine box, white 
trimmed with oodles of red cellophane. 
Candle holders of milk glass holding tall 
red candles flanked each side of the tables, 
which had centerpieces of red and white 
sweetpeas with fern in shallow milkglass 
bowls. It really was artistic and made 
a very pretty picture. Favors were at each 
place, and these consisted of tiny boxes of 
candy. But on with our party! 

Mrs. T. N. Edwards, our president, was 
visiting in Florida and so Mrs. Dan Wheeler, 
our vice-president, presided. (And I must 
add she did it beautifully). Mr. Clyde 
Webb asked grace. 

Mr. E. H. Hemmle, president of the Drug 
Travellers here in Charlotte, sang ' ' Short '- 
nin Bread" and "The Old Mill Stream." 
He has a beautiful deep baritone voice, and 
it's a real treat to hear him. Everyone 
joined in to sing "The Old Mill Stream" 
and then got very sentimental and sang, 
"Let Me Call You Sweetheart. "—Sigh ! 

The "Dipsy Doodlers" played during the 
dinner and their string band is really good. 

By that time, everyone was feeling happy 
and groaning besides, after a real chicken 
dinner with all the ' ' trimmins ! ' ' So, we 
decided better we take some active steps by 
distributing the Valentines. Mr. John Civil 
distributed these and each person had to 
read his Valentine over the loud speaker. 
They were comic ones and each a riot. 

And now the highlight of the evening — 
the prizes! First we will tell you of the 
men's prizes for they were our guests. Mr. 
John Civil won the fitted case given by 
Scott Drug Company. Mr. T. C. Yearwood 
won the Houbigant set and Mr. W. S. Ober- 
shain won the novelty gift which was a 
china dog and tiny fire plug. 

Mrs. S. L. Bonney won the handkerchief 
of the month by Vogue, Mrs. E. H. Mars- 
ton, a lovely compact, Mrs. C. W. Hagood, 
a huge box of Nunnally's candy, and Mrs. 
Dan Wheeler, a box of Scarlett O 'Hara 
candy. Mrs. Jim Beaty won the Bichard 
Hudnut set, and Mrs. Clyde Lisk, a lovely 
box of soap. 

Mrs. John K. Civil, our state president, 
said, "Oh! I wanted that soap!" So, Mrs. 
Lisk went flying up to her table and pre- 
sented her with a cake. With that, Johnny 
Benniek flew to the loudspeaker and said, 
"What do you want to do, give John one 
more good scrubbing?" 

Mrs. Civil asked everyone who got a 
prize to personally thank the firms who 
donated that gift. She then told us that 
the Greensboro women were planning to 
organize an auxiliary, and that she thought 
the Durham, N. C. women would organize 
soon, since the N. C. Convention will be 
held there. As you know, she recently 
helped organize an auxiliary in Asheville, 
X. C. So we are looking forward to having 
these new auxiliaries. 

Mrs. Wlieeler thanked the committee for 
arranging the party, and Mr. C. II. Smitli 
tlianked them in behalf of the men. 

\ collection was taken of $5.50 for the 
Bundles for Britain. 

Tlien everyone went upstairs to dance or 
play bridge. 

Mrs. Civil was stunning in a beautiful 
French blue velvet dinner gown.

General News Items 

Fire on the night of February 10 par- 
tially destroyed the Pembroke Drug Com- 
pany of Pembroke. The loss was partially 
covered by insurance. Several weeks ago 
the prescription department of Sutton's 
Drug Store, Inc., of Edenton was almost 
completely destroyed by fire. 

W. H. Canaday, pharmacist with the 
Prince Drug Co. of Tabor City, is visiting 
relatives in Oklahoma and writes that he 
expects to return to North Carolina soon. 
J. H. Standi of Selma is acting as relief 
pharmacist while Mr. Canaday is away. 

Several weeks ago we received a letter 
from England with the wording, "On His 
Majesty's Service," at the top of the en- 
velope. For a moment we thought it was 
an invitation to join and contribute to 
something but it turned out to be a request 
from the Director of the Science Museum 
Library, South Kensington, London, for a 
copy of the Carolina Journal of Phar- 
macy. It seems that No. 10, Vol. 21 didn't 
arrive. From the tone of the letter appar- 
ently the loss of No. 10 was more disturb- 
ing than Hitler's bombs. 

P. A. Hayes left for Florida on Friday, 
February 14, and expects to return to 
Greensboro on March 3. P. A. certainly 
deserves a vacation because his work has 
tripled since he was elected President of 
the National Wholesale Druggists Associa-

Our Modern Methods of Contraception 

S. W. McFalls, of Greensboro 
(Continued from February issue of The Carolina Joxtrnal op Pharmacy) 

3. Firm Cervix Caps — These are some- 
times known as portio caps and are firm 
cervical caps. They are made either of 
metal, such as silver or chrome, or of bake- 
lite, ivory or other tirm materials. The 
raps are available in twelve different sizes 
ranging from twenty to forty-two milli- 
meters u\ diameter and can be sterilized 
tiy boiling, or if of a semi-transparent bake- 
lite-like suljstanee is resistant to chemicals 
and heat. Women who are found to be un- 
suitable for the diaphragm or other methods 
are referred to this service for an examina- 
tion to determine whether they might be 
suitable for firm cervical caps. The firm cap 
is still regarded as an experimental method 
and because of this a special effort has 
Ijcen made by clinics to keep a close watch 
over tlie women for whom it is prescribed. 
Tlie patient is examined each time she re- 
turns to the center and the condition of the 
I'elvic organs and of the cervix is especially 
noted. Smears are taken at frequent inter- 
vals to determine the type of cells and the 
bacterial flora in the cervical regions.* This 
type of cap affords another method from 
which to clioose so as to select a process 
most suitable for the individual. 

Sponge Method : Another method of me- 
chanical occlusion is the simple sponge used 
with the lately much discussed Foam Pow- 
der, which contains soap sulistitutes having 
detergent and foaming properties. To the 
soap is added a diluent to serve as a colloi- 
dal protective and a small percentage of 
formaldehyde-para (trioxymethylene). The 
paraformaldehyde serves as a preservative 
and is also a spermicide. Upon agitation in 
the presence of moisture and air, the for- 
mula produces a copious foam which is 

The general formula for powders is: 

a. A lathering agent, which consists of a 
salt of an aliphatic alcohol sulfate and 
sodium sulfate in equal quantities. 

b. An inert diluent, corn starch. 

c. Paraformaldehyde (trioxymethylene) 

1.72 per cent by weight, added for its 
spermicidal and preservative qualities. 

The powder is dispensed in a container 
with a sifter top. 

Many different types of sponges are on 
the market made of different grades of rub- 
ber and of several sizes. The most suitable 
has been found by many clinics to be a 
small sterilized natural sponge from the 
Mediterranean Sea." 

How To Use: The woman is instructed to 
soak the sponge in water, squeeze out the 
excess fluid leaving it thoroughly wet, 
sprinkle a little of the powder on each 
side, and then knead the sponge lightly be- 
tween the fingers until it is well covered with 
foam. If the foam does not appear readily, 
either more water or more pow-der is to be 
added until a thick lather is formed. The 
foam-covered sponge is to then be inserted 
deeply into the vagina prior to coitus and is 
to be left in place for several hours, usually 
until the next morning. Where douching 
facilities are available, the patient is ad- 
vised to take a plain or soapy water douche 
at the time of its removal. 

Experimentations : Laboratory tests con- 
ducted with this powder on animals were re- 
ported to have no harmful effects when ap- 
plied to mucous membrane of the vagina 
or eye. Although Carleton, using a foam 
powder of an unknown concentration, noticed 
irritating effects upon the vaginal mucosa 
of two dogs, Cole and Bunde, experimenting 
on rats with the above foam powder formu- 
la, could not substantiate these findings. 
From their experiments^" they concluded 
that daily injections of a suspension of this 
powder into the vaginae of rats caused no 
harm to the mucosa and had no effect upon 
tlie sexual cycles. 

Survey: At the Birth Control Clinical 
Bureau in New York City a survey was car- 
ried out with foam powder. Of the 159 
women who used the method, 122 were suc- 
cessfully protected by it during the period 
of use. Of these, 19 women used the method 
from one to two years; 57 used it from six 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

to eleven months; and 46 for less than six 
months. The total number of months of 
successful use for the entire group was 874 
months, in 73 years. Of those who used 
the method successfully, 112 reported using 
it exclusively and consistently, while ten 
stated that they had used it irregularly, 
alternating with other methods. Fourteen 
patients, furthermore, after successful use 
for varied periods of time, later discon- 
tinued the method for various reasons. Some 
of the patients complained to minor dis- 
comforts, which was due to one or more of 
the chemical ingredients present — and many 
of these found that this disappeared on con- 
tinued use.^^

Jellies: Contraceptive jellies have been 
used clinically for more than twenty years 
in this country and their composition and 
qualities have remained a secret as far as 
proprietary properties are concerned. Never- 
theless, during this year a bill was passed 
in the new Food and Drug Act and it will 
be compulsory that all ingredients in pro- 
prietary products be stated on the container 
of each preparation. This will give the pub- 
lic a better opportunity than they have had 
in the past in selecting the product which 
they think is less harmful and which posses- 
ses those qualities that are most effective. 

Effectiveness : 

1. Spermicidal Properties. 

a. A jelly should be instantaneously 
spermicidal without dilution as well as at a 
reasonable dilution. 

2. Physical Properties. 

a. It should adhere readily to the vaginal 
and cervical mucous membrane. 

b. It must spread well. 

c. There must be no unmixed particles 

d. When the jelly is mixed with cervical 
and vaginal secretions the mixture must 
have the desired physical properties. 

e. Its physical properties must be stable 
for at least one year under expected changes 
in temperature, normally 0-35 C, or 32-95 F. 

3. Chemical Properties. 

a. The jelly must be chemically uniform. 

b. It must mix readily Avith the cervical 
and vaginal secretions, rendering them 

c. The jelly must be chemically stable for 
one year. 

4. Aesthetic Properties. 

a. A contraceptic jelly must be odorless 
or without an unpleasant odor. 

b. The color must not be unpleasant. 

c. The jelly must not stain clothing, 
bedding, etc. 

d. It must not accumulate in the vagina 
when no douche is used. 

e. The jelly must not be excessively lubri- 

f . It should not flow from the vagina be- 
cause of liquefaction or other properties. 

Ingredients : The physical properties of a 
jelly are largely determined by the nature 
of the "vehicle" or "base" used. At present 
there are very few quantitative data as in- 
terpretations of physical properties such as 
apparent viscosity, surface tension and jelly 
strength. Some of the most used vehicles 

1. Glycerite of starch— This is a U. S. P. 
product and contains the following ingre- 
dients : 

Starch 10 Gm. 

Water 20 cc. 

Glycerin 70 cc.

North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association 

AT chapel hill, N. C. 

W. J. SMITH, Managing Editor 

Entered as second-class matter July 5, 1922, at the post office at Ohapel HiU, North Carolina 

under the Act of March 3, 1879

The 1941 General Assembly 

Frederick O. Bowman, Chapel Hill 

The 19-41 General Assembly adjourned sine die at 10:00 P.M. March loth, sixty- 
eight days after its convening on January 8th, 1941. Not only was this the shortest 
session of our law-making body since 1927, but, also, fewer bills were introduced and 
passed by this Legislature than by any other since that time. 

The shortness of this session was due in the main (1) to the fact that the majority 
of both Houses in practically every instance followed the dictates of the Governor in 
effectuating his Legislative program, the one notable exception to this being Wage and 
Hour Legislation in wliieh he lost out completely; and, (2) because the 1939 General 
Assembly enacted the Eevenue Law^ as a permanent one, as has been pointed out in this 
section in previous issues of the Journal, which meant that the Eevenue Act of 1939 
could be amended only. Heretofore, several weeks have been devoted to hearings on the 
numerous Eevenue sections, which Avere automatically disposed with at the last session. 
Hearings were held only on the amendments offered. 

Below a summary is furnished of the many measures affecting us which were offered 
and considered by the Legislature. It will be noted that perhaps there were more Legis- 
lative proposals submitted affecting us this time than we have had to deal with in any 
Legislature during the last decade. While it is true we were unable to secure the passage 
of the Prophylactic Bill and the bill relative to fees for reciprocal licenses and for the 
re-registration of pharmacists, we were able to forestall the enactment of several that 
would have cost the druggists thousands upon thousands of dollars and which would have 
put many drug stores out of business completely; namely, compensation law proposal, wage 
and hour law proposals, etc. Likewise, we w^ere able to forestall measures to repeal the 
"Fair Trade Act." At least tliree members had this in mind when they reached Ealeigh. 
Also, we were able to head off two bills that would have asked that the Legislature issue 
special licenses. Incidentally, for the first time in some six or seven Legislatures we were 
able to go through this one without having a single bill introduced to lower the standards 
of Pharmacy. Further, we were able to forestall the introduction of two bills that would 
have placed a gallonage tax on fountain syrups. 

The most important change made in the Sales Tax Law was an amendment exemi)ting 
"all food and food products for human consumption," effective on and after July 1, 1941. 
'Food and food i)roduets for human consumption' and states that it 'shall be given its usual 
and ordinary mpaning, but shall not include malt or vinous beverages, soft or carbonated drinks, 
sodas, or beverages such as are ordinarily sold or dispensed at stores, bars, stands or soda fountains 
or in connection therewith, candies or confectionaries, medicines, tonics, and preparations in liquid, 
powdered, granular, tablet, capsule, or pill form sold as dietary supplements'; nor does 'food and 
food products for human consumjjtion' include prepared meals or foods sold or served on or off 
the premises by restaurants, cafe.s, cafeterias, hotel dining rooms, drug stores, or other places where 
prepared meals or foods are sold or served." 

No change was made in the Sales Tax Law with reference to exempt medicines. Sub- 
section (k) of Section 406 provides: "Sales of medicines sold on prescriptions of physicians, 
or medicines compounded, processed or blended by the druggists offering the same for sale 
at retail" are exempt from the 3% sales tax. 

Four major Wage and Hour Bills were introduced in the 1941 General Asseml)ly. 
Several hearings were held by the Labor Committees of the House and Senate. Finally, 
a. subcommittee was appointed^ to study the bills and report back to the full committee 
its recommendations. Later, the subcommittee reported no agreement could be reached 
on any of the proposed measures, whereupon the Labor Committees reported all of the 
Wage and Hour Bills unfavorable. 

Briefly stated the provisions of each of these bills follow: 

54 The Carolina Journal op Pharmacy 

,5'. B. 78 — The Gregory Bill — Minimum hourly wages, first year 25 cents, next six years 30 cents 
and after seven years 40 cents. Maximum weekly hours, first year 44, second year 42, and after 
second year 40. Applicable to both men and women and provides for compensation for all hours 
worked in excess of those specified at a rate of not less than one and one-half times the regular 
hourly rate. Exempts only those engaged in an executive or professional capacity, agricultural labor 
and domestic service in private homes. 

S. B. 121 — The Larhins Bill — ^(Embodying substantially the recommendations of minority report 
of Fair Labor Standards Commission.) Minimum wages of 2.5 cents per hour and maximum hours 
of 48 per week. Applicable to both men and women and provides for compensation at a rate of one 
and one-half times the regular rate of pay for all hours worked in excess of those specified. Exempts 
all employes having a guaranteed monthly salary of $150 or more and those engaged in agriculture 
and domestic employment in private homes. 

S. B. 127- — The Clark Bill — (Representing majority report of Fair Labor Standards Commission.) 
No minimum wage provision. Maximum hours of 48 per week for female employes and 55 per week 
for male employes with a provision for time and a half compensation for hours worked in excess 
of the base hours prescribed. The act does not exempt any person employed in a retail establishment 
other than those in a supervisory or executive position. This act is virtually the same as the present 
"North Carolina Maximum Hour Law" except that it does not exempt (as does the present law) 
"employers employing not more than eight persons" and "all male clerks in mercantile establishments."

Seven Proven Ways to 

Increase Your Candy 


H. L. Hitelicoek 
of the HoUingsworth Candy Company 

(Presented at tlie Greensboro Merchandising 

First — Become candy minded. Let your 
wishes be known not only to your entire 
personnel but to the manufacturer from 
whom you buy. 

Second — Locate and build your candy de- 
partment in the front of the store on an 
open step display. 

Third — Put one competent clerk in charge 
of this department. Let it be his or her 
duty to keep this department in perfect 
order at all times. 

Fourth — Train all your clerks to sell, not only gift candies, but all profitable lines 
in the front of the store. Teach them the right manner of approach which, if done right, 
will not antagonize your customers. Insist that they never ask the customer to buy 
when they first approach them but to call the customer's attention to the BEAUTIFUL 
candy department and the BEAUTIFUL gift packages. Use good judgment in hiring 
your clerks for the front of the store and when you place an inexperienced clerk on the 
floor, do not leave him alone until you have gone over with him the important points of 
selling and the manner of approach. Ask your candy salesman wlio calls on you to help 
you train the new clerk. He will be onty too glad to do so. 

Fifth— Selling Gift Candies for Seasonal Events. Make a beautiful display of the 
cajidy in the front of the store and call a meeting of your entire personnel that night. 
See to it that every clerk is entirely familiar with every package and show them how it 
should be presented to the customer. Endeavor to sell each clerk on the possibilities for 
a real volume during this event. Insist they start the next day soliciting advance orders. 
Mr. Druggist, you must teach your customers to give you their orders well in advance 
of each event, otherwise you will never enjoy the volume you should have and sooner 
or later your competitor or the department store will have your business for the seasonal 
event. If you take only ten advance orders for Mother's Day this year, it Avill be just 
as easy to take twenty orders next year. When you wait until the last day before Mother's 
Day to dispose of your stock, you will surely be caught with more than your profit in 
unsold because your customers will have bought elsewhere from a dealer 
who was more aggressive. Use the lay-away jilaii. It works. Put im a contest among 
your clerks and award a prize to the winner. 

Sixth — Advertise locally by newspaper and radio. Be suie your window is decorated 
at the time your ad is running and that you have the caiuly ])r(i]i('rly displayed on the 
inside of the store. 

Seventh — Work the big events of the year: Birthday and Anniversary. These have 
greater possilnlities for increased volume than any other events of the year. 

N«w, gentlemen, take all seven of these proven ways to increase your candy business, 
put them into practice, and reap the rewards which are sure to materialize.

Greensboro Merchandising Clinic 

More than 100 druggists, their wives and 
friends identified with the drug trade, at- 
tended the one-day Merchandising Clinic in 
Greensboro on March 5. Fourteen sjieakers 
appeared on the program during the day to 
give those attending the meeting some sug- 
gestions for improving their businesses. 
Ralph Eogers, President-elect of the N. C. 
P. A., presided. 

R. J. Sykes, President of the Greensboro 
Drug Club, welcomed the visitors to the city 

Ralph Rogers 

and stated, "Pharmacists who have the op- 
portunity to get together in small groups 
and discuss their problems find that they 
can more easily cope with them in this 
way." President Joe Hollingsworth of the 
State Association responded to the address 
of welcome. 

W. J. Smith, scheduled to speak on 
"Trends in Pharmacy," relinquished his tim^ 
to W. T. Atkinson, Narcotic Agent sta- 
tioned in Greensboro, in order that proposed 
legislation placing certain exempt prepara- 
tions (paregoric, etc.) on prescription might 
be explained to the group. Mr. Atkinson 
stated that the supply of opium in this 

country was being rapidly depleted and 
that legislative action would have to be 
taken in order to conserve the drug. 

H. L. Hitchcock, sales representative of 
the Hollingsworth Candy Company, ad- 
dressed the group on "Seven Proven Ways 
to Increase Your Candy Business." A sum- 
mary of his talk is published on page f ??? 

A most interesting address on effective 
ways to increase prescription volume was 
given by Doctor Ralph Clark of Merck & 
Company. The speaker, a former secretary 
of the Wisconsin Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion, related many practical methods for 
building the prescription department and 
urged his listeners to emphasize the pro- 
fessional side of their businesses. 

Professor I. Q. & S. of Elixir Univer- 
sity closed the morning session with a "Take 
It or Leave It" program during Avhich prizes 
were distributed to the winners. Nine con- 
testants selected from the audience were 
asked questions relating to pharmacy in 
North Carolina. Four of the contestants, 
B. C. Brown of Greensboro ; R. B. Camp- 
bell of Taylorsville ; C. M. Andrews of Bur- 
lington and L. A. Wharton of Gibsonville, 
correctly answered the questions and each 
were awarded 32 prizes presented through 
the courtesy of the B. C. Remedy Company, 
Justice Drug Company and the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association. All nine 
contestants missed the jack pot question. 
When was the North Carolina Pharmaceuti- 
cal Association organized? so the balance of 
the prizes will be distributed during the 
next "Clinic" to be held in eastern North 

During the afternoon session W. Lee 
Moose discussed the work being done by the 
"Retail Drug Institute" in the state. Fol- 
lowing this, W. J. Smith, pinch-hitting for 
Attorney F. O. Bowman who was busy with 
the General Assembly in Raleigh, discussed 
"The Legislative Situation in Raleigh." 

A popular feature of the afternoon pro- 
gram Avas presented by J. M. Cates, Jr., rep- 
resentative of Southern Dairies, Inc. The 
speaker demonstrated to his audience meth- 
ods for preparing special ice cream sodas 
and drinks. J. H. Isley assisted by a uni- 
formed fountaineer served ice cream during-

Can You Profitably Sell Bottled 
Drinks at the Soda Fountain? 

A. B. Kuiikle, Conover pharmacist, recently 
wrote the Editor of the Carolina Journal 
OF Pharmacy in regard to the sale of 
bottled drinks in drug stores that have foun- 
tain equipment. A portion of his letter is 
reproduced below : 

"I may be starting something; if so, I 
hope it Avill be constructive. What I want 
to bring up is the idea of selling bottled 
drinks. Personally, I can't see any logical 
reason why drug stores should sell them. 
Eecently a man walked into my store and 
called for a bottled Coca-Cola. When I told 
him that we didn't keep any bottled drinks 
he became sarcastic and wanted to know 
what was wrong. I said, "Listen, friend, 
I have about thirteen hundred dollars in- 
vested here in equipment to make drinks, 
so don't you think it Avould be rather fool- 
ish for me to buy them already made?" He 
said, "Yes, I see your point and you are 

"There are numerous reasons, as I see it, 
why Ave should not sell bottled drinks. I used 
to sell them and am mighty glad I quit. I 
know I am better off by quitting. People 
would come in, especially young women, and 
want a large paper cup of crushed ice along 
with the bottled drink. People would carry 
off bottles and throw them away. I kept 
my storage space cluttered up with them and 
hardly had room for milk, etc. The Coca- 
Cola Company started advertising six for 
25 cents which cost 20 cents plus refrigera- 
tion, breakage, etc., wholesale. 

"So, it is obvious that no money is to be 
made on bottled drinks and the chances 
are that the drug stores that sell them are 
losing money thereby. Whenever anyone 
comes in my store and asks what kind of 
bottled drinks I have, I reply, 'Citrate of 
Magnesia and Pluto Water.' " 

Wolfe Named Head of Mount Airy 
Merchants Association 

W. S. Wolfe, Mount Airy druggist, was 
recently elected president of the Merchants 
Association in that city to succeed W. F. 
Carter, Jr. Mr. Wolfe served as secretary 
of the organization last year.

discussed by C. C. Fordham, Jr., at a 
luncheon session of the Greensboro Lions 
Club at the King Cotton Hotel on March 3. 
He was presented by Lon Russell, popular 
Greensboro pharmacist. 

The background of pharmacj' and re- 
(luireinents for entrance into the field were 
reviewed by the speaker. He said the pro- 
fession dates back 4,000 years and that the 
first license to practice pharmacy and medi- 
cine was issued in 1241. 

Two or three new items are being added 
daily to the 15,000 to 16,000 drugs in the 
present-day pharmacy, he said, showing that 
each new drug must be studied thoroughly, 
tested under clinical conditions and given 
board approval before it is placed on the

The Story of Lance 

Lauce, Inc., of Charlotte, manufacturers 
of peanut butter saudA\'iches, candies and 
confections, has just issued to their custom- 
ers an illustrated booklet on "The Story of 

A part of the booklet relates to the his- 
tory of The House of Lance and is repro- 
duced below: 

"It was just before the last World War 
that Lance originated the now popular pea- 
nut butter sandwich, made from high grade 
peanut butter combined with a variety of 
soda crackers and cookies. It is because 
of these long years of experience, over a 
quarter of a century in fact, that Lance is 
able to make such an excellent sandwich. 
The late Mr. Philip L. Lance is credited 
with inventing peanut butter sandwiches. 
He and his son-in-law, Mr. S. A. Van 
Every, founded the eompanj^ and the latter 
has been president since the death of Mr. 
Lanee, in 1926, They started out in the 
little 14 by 22 second-story room. In this 
dingy little room everything from peanut 
roasting to bookkeeping was done. The 
partners would buj- a sack of peanuts in the 
shell, roast them, and then sally forth with 
baskets on their arms to deliver on foot. 
A hired horse and buggy w-as a rare luxury 
for them. Eventually they acquired a 
Model T Ford with imaginary brakes. They 
would have to sight the place where they 
wanted to stop, cut off the gas, and hope 
to coast to a standstill at the right place. 
. . . Sometimes it worked, and sometimes 
it didn't. 

"Meantime, the partners hired their first 
salesman, Mr. James H. Wilson. When the 
war broke out, a soldier at Camp Greene, 
near Charlotte, gave them a recipe for pea- 
nut brittle. In their excitement over cook- 
ing the first batch, they neglected to make 
a stirring paddle, and the batch was ruined. 
Finally they succeeded, and the first candy 
was ]>acked in shirt boxes. The first custo- 
mer was a Mr. House, a grocer on North 
Tryon Street. His name will never be for- 

"After several years of business, the com- 
pany moved to more spacious quarters on 
West Ninth Street. Soon Lance was doing 
lierhaps the largest parcel-post business in 
the state. Two years later, January, 1926, 

to lie exact, the company moved into its 
present location on South Boulevard. 

"Lance is one of those rare concerns that 
contradicted the general laws of the "De- 
pression" and expanded, growing with the 
.vears instead of, well, hibernating is a good 
way to express it. Three big 3 -story units 
liave been added, which more than quad- 
rupled the floor space of the plant. And 
now over 200 salesmen in 17 states are sell- 
ing 125 Lance products; and we are still

A bill was prepared, amending the Uniform Narcotic Act placing the sale of cannabis 
in all of its forms and all exempt narcotic preparations, including paregoric, Bateman's 
drops, Godfrey's Cordial, etc., on prescription only, and exempting from prescription re- 
quirement preparations containing codeine, and, further to make provision for the sale of 
narcotic drugs to certain governmental agencies engaged in the National Defense Program. 
It is understood this bill was drafted at the request of the Governor, wlio had been asked 
by Federal Officials to have such legislation enacted in the State. The bill, however, was 
never introduced. 

A request was made by the Department of Agriculture for an appropriation for 
$25,000 for the next biennium for the enforcement of the New Drug and Cosmetic Law. 
We succeeded in getting the Joint Appropriations Committee to grant this request. 
A sub-committee appointed to trim appropriations, working with the Governor struck this 
item from the list. Consequently, no funds are available for the enforcement of this 
important work. 

Your representatives in Ealeigh were kept busy constantly guarding and fighting for

Monthly Meeting 

Mrs. F. A. Powell, 
Corresponding Secretary 

Mrs. F. A. Powell and Mrs. B. L. Mere- 
dith entertained the Asheville Auxiliary at 
the home of Mrs. Powell on March 7. After 
a short business session keno was enjoyed 
with Mrs. Mathews, Mrs. Nowell, ^Mrs.

After tlie keno everyone present was pre- 
sented a case of Dr. Pepper donated by

March Report of Charlotte Pharma- 
ceutical Auxiliary 

^Irs. Philip Van Every 
Corresjionding Secretary 

We met in the Parish House of old Saint 
Peter's Episcopal Church and were served 
an old-fashioned luncheon of ham, yams and 
apple pie. It was so cold and windy out- 
side and so cozy and warm where we were, 
that we stayed nearly all afternoon. 

Mrs. T. N. Edwards, our president, opened 
the meeting and Mrs. Joe Monroe, Mrs. P. 
C. Day and Mrs. E. I. Butler were elected 
the nominating committee to nominate new 
officers for 1941-42, with Mrs. Monroe as 
chairman. It's hard to believe that the time 
has rolled around again to do this. 

One thing that wc did that I think is 
very nice was to take a collection for a 
fund to send flowers to sick members. You 
can give any amount that j'ou wish, from a 
penny to a dollar. Mrs. C. H. Smith was 
made chairman and treasurer of that com- 
mittee, Avitli Mrs. H. L. Bizzell and Mrs. 

Bernard Ellwanger appointed to help her. 
We are going to do this each month. 

We had three new members, Mrs. L. W. 
Millican, Mrs. A. B. Morgan and Mrs. Clyon 
Lewis; all very attractive and we're so 
pleased to have them. Do you know that 
we've had fifteen new members since Sep- 
tember? We think that's quite a record. 
Our attendance averages from forty to forty- 
five persons each meeting, and that's really 
a fair-sized crowd. 

Our bouquet for this month goes to Mrs. 
Walter K. Dixon, "Mae," to us all. She's a 
real member. She never misses a meeting 
and takes so much interest in the auxiliary. 
Mr. Dixon is with Bauer and Black and they 
are a grand couple. 

We had some inside information about 
the plans for the convention in Durham. 
And you can take mj^ word for it, we're 
going to have a gorgeous time! 

Xot long ago, I was going through an old 
scrap book and was impressed all over 
again by the poem that I'm passing along 
to you. 


"If I knew j'ou and you knew me, 
'Tis seldom M-e would disagree; 
But never having yet clasped hands, 
Both often fail to understand 
Tliat each intends to do what's right 
And treat each other 'honor bright.' 
How little to complain there'd be, 
If I knew you and you knew me. 

"Whenever we ship you by mistake, 
Or in your bills some error make, 
From irritation you'd be free, 
If I knew you and you knew me. 
Or when checks do not come on time 
And customers say nary a line, 
AVe would wait without anxiety, 
If I knew you and you knew me. 

"Or when some goods you fire back, 
Or make a kick on this and that. 
We'd take it in good part and see, 
If I knew you and you knew me. 
With customers, thousand strong, 
Occasionally things will go wrong, 
Sometimes our fault, sometimes theirs, 
Forebearance would decrease all cares, 
Kind friend, how pleasant it would be, 
It I knew you and you knew me."

The depression made for cold-blooded 
business methods. When an Eastern firm 
received word its salesman had been found 
dead in Seattle, it wired as follows: "Send 
samples back by freight and search the 
body for orders." 

Two salesmen found the only hotel in town 
full. The proprietor told them the best he 
could do for them was to let them sleep in 
an abandoned church building across the 
street. They agreed. About two o'clock 
in the morning the church bell began to 
clang. The hotel owner woke up his porter 
and sent him to see what the trouble was. 
"Well, what was the matter?" he anxiously 
asked the porter on his return. "The party 
in pew 26 wants a gin riekey," the porter 

"Ask Ben Coppedge about Dr. Parker."

N.A.R.D. Develops Nationwide Pre- 
scription Card Service for Pharma- 
cists' Use in Professional Interviews 

For many years, pharmacists have felt the 
need for a means of maintaining a consist- 
ent professional contact "with physicians in 
their communities, and of encouraging the 
writing of individualized prescriptions, us- 
ing official preparations as frecjuently as 
possible. A number of attempts have been 
made on a local basis to supply this need 
through the means of prescription cards or 
formularies, but no generally standardized 
system has been developed, and the work 
has been carried on only spottily by inter- 
professional relations committees. 

One of the first major undertakings by 
the newly-established Professional Eelations 
Department of The National Association of 
Eetail Druggists has been to develop a Pre- 
scription Card service for the Association's 
members. Announced shortly after the first 
of the year, this service has met Avith wide- 
spread approval and commendation on the 
part of pharmacists interested in the de- 
velopment of their professional departments. 
These pharmacists are finding the cards, 
which present recommendations for prescrip- 
tion use, to be an acceptable, useful, and 
indeed indispensable means of approach- 
ing physicians. The formulas presented are 
not taken at random from formula books, 
but have l)een, and will be, largely prescrip- 
tions based upon a rational therapy, includ- 
ing medications which have been clinically 
successful and whose results may be fore- 
told with reasonable accuracy. In so far as 
this procedure is expedient, it will be con- 
sistently followed, with deviations only 
when it becomes desirable to present some- 
thing which is new and upon which pub- 
lished medical reports are convincing. 

The cards are 3 by 5 inches — the right 
size to go into a filing cabinet so that the 
physician may retain them permanently for 
constant reference. The first set of cards, 
now ready, consists of 8; these will be fol- 
lowed by 4 each month. The price of a 
year's service for one physician is only 
$1.00; 5 sets, $3.75; 10 sets, $6.50; 25 sets, 
$15.00; 100 sets, $35.00. 

The response at the outset has been be- 
yond expectations. One city association has 

ordered 500 sets, another wants 200 sets. 
If every retail druggist in the country were 
to procure one set of cards for each physi- 
cian in his community and use them in the 
manner set forth in the January 16 and 
February 20 issues of the N.A.B.D. Jour- 
nal, there would unquestionably be such a 
stimulation in prescription writing as has 
never been experienced before. It would 
serve to bring the physicians back to the 
practice of prescribing individualized medi- 
cines; discourage and eventually end dis- 
pensing ; and halt the prescribing of pro- 
prietary preparations, which is detrimental 
to physician and pharmacist alike, and harm- 
ful to the public because it inevitablj' leads 
to dangerous self -medication. 

It is not assumed that the cards alone 
will do the job. Cards sent to the physi- 
cian through the mails may do some good; 
but to he most effective in accomplishing 
their purpose, they should be handed to the 
physician personally. So used, they will 
supply the occasion for making a call, serve 
as an introduction to the subject to be dis- 
cussed with the physician, and assure the 
physician that the pharmacist knows the 
subject of prescription writing and has 
something valuable and specific to suggest. 

It will impress upon the physician that 
the pharmacist is not only a storekeeper, 
but a fellow-professional man — a medical 
specialist whose co-operation he needs. Much 
of the responsibility for the failure of some 
])hysicians to view the jjliarmacist in this 
light must lie Avith the pharmacist himself. 
If the pharmacist is ever to recover his place 
as a member of one of the health profes- 
sions, he must earn his right to that place 
by stressing his professional interest. If 
these i)rcscription cards are used regularly 
and intelligently, they will help pharmacy to 
re-establish its standing and to win the 
recognition from the medical jjrofession to 
which it is entitled. 

The prescription cards are now ready for 
distribution and may be procured by mem- 
bers of the N.A.R.D., or affiliated state and 
local associations from The National Asso- 
ciation of Retail Druggists, 205 West 
Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois. Remember, 
a full year's service costs only $1 or less in 
quantities for each jjliysician to be detailed.

Oleovitamin A and D 

Because of vrai conditions the supplies 
of Cod Liver Oil have been greatly reduced 
and the price advanced. To meet the situa- 
tion, under the advice of the U. S. P. Vita- 
min Advisory Board the Pharmacopoeia has 
established specifications and standards for 
a solution of Vitamin A and D concentrates, 
of natural source, in oil solution to be known 
under the official title, "Oleovitamin A and 
D." The product corresponds in potency to 
a Cod Liver Oil of good quality. 

It may require a short time for this 
product to be made available to the retail 
drug trade but it is hoped that it will soon 
relieve the shortage in God Liver Oil. It

Fulmer Seeks Repeal of Tydings- 

Miller National Fair Trade 

Enabling Act 

Representative Hampton P. Fulmer of the 
2nd District of South Carolina has intro- 
duced HR-3821 in the House of Represent- 
atives, calling for the outright repeal of 
the Tydings-Miller National Fair Trade 
Enabling Act. The bill has been referred 
to the House Judiciarj-^ Committee of which 
Honorable Zebulon Weaver of the 11th 
North Carolina District is a member. 

If this hill passes, the usefulness of the 
North Carolina Fair Trade Act will be 
ended. Enemies of Fair Trade are exerting 
every ounce of their strength and influence 
in Washington so that they can resume 
their loss-leader tactics. To protect this 
legislation it will be necessary that you — 
the independent druggist — write your Con- 
gressman and tell him in no uncertain terms 
exactly where you stand on this question. 

No state has ever repealed a Fair Trade 
law ! Be sure you do your part to protect 
the National Enabling Act. Write that 
letter now — later will be too late. 

Fair Trade Booklet 

"What about Fair Trade.'" a thirty-one 
page booklet containing answers to the 
questions you have been asking about this 
important subject has just been made avail- 
able to the drug trade by the National Asso- 
ciation of Retail Druggists. The booklet 
presupposes that the reader is entirely un- 
familiar with the subject — the argument 
"starts from scratch" and covers the sub- 
ject fully. 

Retailers desiring copies for distribution 
to the general public may obtain them from 
The N.A.R.D., 205 West Wacker Drive, 
Chicago, Illinois. The cost, barely enough 
to pay for the paper and printing, is as 
follows: Single copies, 10c; 25 copies, $1.00; 
100 copies, $3.00; 1,000 copies, $27.50 and 
5,000 copies, $125.00. 

It is believed that if a million copies of 
the booklet are circulated throughout the 
United States, Fair Trade sentiment will be 
strengthened immeasurably. 

Retailing by Pharmacists 
Retailing dy Pharmacists, a practical 
book on all retailing phases of the drug in- 
dustry is now available to pharmacists who 
are looking for new ideas to pep up their 
businesses. The author, A. Hamilton Chute 
of the University' of Minnesota School of 
Business Administration, prepared the book 
on the basis of experience in teaching a 
course in retail store management for phar- 
macists. Numerous men in the manufac- 
turing, wholesaling and retailing fields were 
consulted in its preparation, as well as com- 
petent marketing authorities. 

Copies of the book are available from the 
Burgess Publishing Company, 426 South 
Sixth Street, Minneapolis, Minnesota at 

Jernigan Chosen for Annapolis 

Rupert W. Jernigan, Jr., son of pharma- 
cist R. W. Jernigan, Eubanks Drug Store,

gressman Carl Durham as a cadet in the 
United States Naval Academy at Annapo- 
lis. Rupert is now a sophomore in the

the address by Mr. Gates and it was later 
stated that eighty people had been served 
a standard 5c portion of ice cream from 
1^/4 gallons of bulk cream. 

While speaking on the subject, "Prob- 
lems in Drug Store Management," T. C. 
Yearwood of Charlotte emphasized the 
shortage of certain drugs due to war con- 
ditions. He said that one of our biggest 
problems at the present time is an insuffi- 
cient number of trained pharmacists. 
Through the courtesy of A. M. Mattocks of 
Greensboro, twelve photographs of prize- 
winning window displays were shown to 
the group. 

During the "Open Forum" session eon- 
ducted by Roger McDuffie of Greensboro, a 
number of topics were freely discussed. Sales 
Tax tokens, the Pure Food, Drug and Cos- 
metic Act, the sale of paregoric, combina- 
tion deals and drugs limited to prescription 
were considered. 

P. A. Hayes, President of the National 
Wholesale Druggists' Association, spoke to 
the group during an informal dinner at the 
O. Henry Hotel on the subject, "The Whole- 
saler — A Service Partner for the Retail 
Druggist." Immediately preceding his talk, 
the speaker introduced sixteen of his em- 
ployees who had turned out in a body to 
hear their "boss." 

T. G. Crutchfield, who had charge of the 
entertainment features of the program, an- 
nounced during the dinner that S. M. Pur- 
cell has sent twelve of his pharmacists and 
clerks to the meeting. 

"What Vitamins Do For Us," a thirty- 
minute movie covering the function of Vita- 
mins and their sales possibilities was pre- 
sented by Douglas Graham of E. R. Squibb 
& Sons. The speaker estimated that the sale 
of vitamins and vitamin products would 
exceed one hundred million dollars during 
1941 and that the progressive pharmacist 
would capitalize on this demand by stock- 
ing an adequate supply of recognized mer- 
chandise in this field. 

A series of five educational movies show- 
ing the production of essential oils was pre- 

sented by George R. Fellows, Atlanta Rep- 
resentative of Fritzsche Brothers, Inc., at 
the close of the meeting. The speaker stated 
that the price on certain oils had advanced 
due to the fact that native herb collectors 
find it more profitable to sign up Avith the 
W.P.A. than to search for the drugs in the 
fields and forests. 

Miss Alice Noble, Secretary of the School 
of Pharmacy, attended the Clinic as an 
official representative of the Southeastern 
Drug Journal. 

Board of Pharmacy Examinations 

The next examinations of the North Caro- 
lina Board of Pharmacy will be held in 
Chapel Hill on June 17, 1941. Full infor- 
mation concerning the examinations may be 
obtained from Secretary-Treasurer F. W. 
Hancock, Oxford, North Carolina. 

The University Pharmacy Senate 

Fred Dees, Jr. 

The last meeting of the Winter Quarter 
for the Senate was conducted in the form 
of a debate. The query for debate was. 
Resolved, that Exclusive Brands are detri- 
mental to Pharmacy. The affirmative was 
upheld by Joe King and Al Mattocks, the 
negative by Fred Dees and John Pickard. 

Many interesting points were brought out 
by both sides. The affirmative argued (1) 
that certain exclusive brands were inferior 
in quality; (2) that stores handling these 
Ijrands often lost the confidence of the phy- 
sicians; (3) that many of the brands were 
unofficial; (4) that customers became dis- 
satisfied because of "high pressure" sales- 
manship of these brands. 

The negative met the above points with 
the followdng: (1) exclusive dealership es- 
tablishes a good trade that cannot be 
infringed upon by other stores; (2) factory- 
to-pharmaeist makes for more profit by elim- 
inating the "middleman"; (3) special inter- 
est taken by the company in helping retail 
pharmacists with business problems; (4) 
exclusive brands have to meet U. S. P. 
standards and Pure Food and Drug Laws. 

After the cases were presented, the Senate 
voted and awarded the decision to the nega-

Miss Mary Jane Goodwin of Greensboro 
and William Edward Cromwell of Charlotte 
were married at College Park Baptist 
Church, Greensboro, on March 12 surrounded 
by kinspeople and close friends. The bride 
is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Norman 
B. Moury of Greensboro and the sister of 
pharmacist Malcolm Goodwin of Charlotte. 

After the private ceremony the bride's 
parents entertained the families and out-of- 
town guests at their home, where the bride's 
table was centered by a wedding scene and 
further graced by white flowers and candles. 

Mr. and Mrs. Cromwell will end their 
wedding trip in Charlotte where the bride- 
groom has lived for two years. He is with 
Kemington Rand, Incorporated. 

A Step in the Right Direction 

Tlie following announcement is being dis- 
tributed by Lenoir druggists : 

Beginning first Sunday in April, (6th), 
the drug stores in Lenoir will inaugurate 

a Co-operative Sunday Closing Program; 
one store, only, keeping open all day Sun- 
day and alternating in following order: 

Sundaj', April 6th, Dayvault's, Open 8:00 
A.M. to 9:30 P.M. 

Sundaj-, April 13th, McNairy's, Open 8:00 
A.M. to 9:30 P.M. 

Sunday, April 20th, Lenoir Drug Store, 
Open 8:00 A.M. to 9:30 P.M. 

Sunday, April 27th, BalleAv's, Open 8:00 
A.M. to 9:30 P.M. 

The same sequence and rotation to be fol- 
lowed throughout the year. 

Above stores will close every niglit, except 
Saturday, at 9:30 P.M. 

We are hopeful, and feel sure, that the 
above program will augment, rather than 
curtail all necessary Drug Store service, 
since it permits a full and uninterrupted 
Sunday service, at one indicated store, and 
affords more hours per week accommoda- 
tion than under prevailing conditions. 

Prescription refills and purchase of cer- 
tain controlled brands and items from the 
stores closed on Sunday may readily be 
anticipated and secured on week ends. 

This program has been launched in order 
to effect certain necessary economies and in 
an honest and voluntary effort to comply 
with modern demands and trends puisuant 
to a full and loyal compliance with shorter 
work hours and more humane employment 
conditions; and at same time, contribute to 
the privileged rest and proper Sunday ob- 
servance of all employees and personnel. 

Hence, the several Drug Stores, in a spirit 
of mutual cooperation service and wel- 
fare, are launching this program in the 
faith and belief tliat the public will approve 
and benefit from its operation in the same 
relative degree and extent as the under-

President Hollings%uorth Invites You 
to the Durham Convention 

It is mv sincere wish that every pharma- 
cist in North Carolina, who can possibly 
do so, will attend the Convention of the 
N. C. P. A. in Durham, May 13, 14, 15. 
The hospitality of Durham is well knoA\ai 
and tlie Durham Drug Club, the T. M. A., 
the Women's Auxiliary and our friends in 
Chapel Hill have put forth every effort to 
make this Convention one of the very best, 
and you may rest assured it Avill be both 
pleasant and profitable. 

The program this year has been arranged 
for two days and three nights, so that you 
will not have to be away from your store 
quite so long, and it has been our aim to 
make it a practical and instructive one. 

I visited the Durham Drug Club on two 
occasions and it certainly is a live-wire or- 
ganization. They were very enthusiastic 
over the Convention, leaving no doubt but 
that you will be royally entertained. The 
ladies who attend this Convention have a lot 
to look forward to, as very elaborate plans 
have been made for their entertainment. 

E. G. Green, Chairman of the Entertain- 
ment Committee, has arranged a special pro- 
gram for those of you who do not dance. 
This feature, to be presented from 10 to 
10:30 P.M. on Tuesday night in Convention 
Headquarters, immediately precedes the 

Plans have been completed by the T. M. 
A. to stage a super "Jamboree" on the 
final night of the Convention in the Durham 
Armory. The T. M. A, Party, always one 
of the outstanding events of the Conven- 
tion, will give you a real entertainment thrill 
this year. 

To pharmacists who are not members of 
the Association, I want to extend a special 
invitation to attend this Convention, so that 
you may see just what the Association is 
doing to help pharmacy and pharmacists in 
North Carolina. The reports on the two 
sectional meetings and the Drug Institute, 
started this year, will interest you, I be- 
lieve, and show you that it is desirable to be 
a member. Application blanks will be glad- 
ly furnished at the registration desk. 

It is my earnest desire that the younger 
pharmacists of the State attend this Con- 
vention and take part in the discussions and 
express their thoughts and ideas. 

We have many "grand old men" in phar- 
macy in North Carolina whom we enjoy see- 
ing each year at convention time. 

It will be a rare privilege and a real 
pleasure for me to install Mr. Ralph P. 
Rogers, one of Durham's own, as President 
of the Association during the last session. 

I am looking forward to seeing you in 

(Signed) Joe Rollings worth.

''The Friendly City" Welcomes You 

I. T. EEAMEE, Local Secretary 

Durham, the "City of Education and In- 
dustry," often referred to as "The Friend- 
ly City," cordially invites you to the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association Con- 
vention to be held here May 13-14-15. Chapel 
Hill, located near-by, joins Durham in wel- 
coming you to the Sixty-second N. C. P. A. 

We confidently expect this to be one of 
the best conventions ever held in the Old 
North State. A large attendance is expected, 
and plans have been made accordingly. It 
is a happy coincidence that one of our fel- 
lovF-townsmen, Mr. Ralph P. Rogers, will be 
installed as President of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association for the coming 
year. A celebration is in order, and we will 
do our best to make it a good one. 

Special plans have been made to enter- 
tain the ladies. A Welcoming Tea provided 
by the Washington Duke Hotel on Tuesday 
afternoon will give old friends a chance to 
get together and newcomers an excellent op- 
portunity to get acquainted. Others attrac- 
tions will be offered for the folks who ar- 
rive on Tuesday afternoon. Tickets to the 
Uptown Movie Theatre will be available; 
and at the Hotel from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. a 
special showing of the interesting picture 
"Tobaceoland" will be offered. 

The opening dance on Tuesday night will 
be sponsored by the Peabody Drug Com- 
pany, and several surprises are in store for 
those Avho attend. Entertainment features 
will be presented after the opening business 
sessions. Another item of interest will be 
the Special Prize drawing. All retail drug- 
gists who register up to the time of this 
dra^ving will participate in the "Book 
Prizes," — one major prize of books with a 
value of approximately $50.00, with $50.00 
Avorth of additional books to be won as in- 
dividual prizes. Peabody Drug Company 
vnll furnish these prizes. Freddy John- 
son's excellent orchestra will furnish the 
music for the first evening's dancing at the 

Wednesday at noon the Pet Dairy Prod- 
ucts Company will be hosts to the ladies at 

a luncheon, and immediately after this es- 
pecially-provided busses will take the ladies 
to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke 

A real old-fashioned Barbecue Supper 
party in Chapel Hill from 5:30 to 7:00 on 
Wednesday for the entire Convention, with 
the student body of the University of North 
Carolina School of Pharmacy as special 
guests, will be the next order of the day. 
The B. C. Remedy Company will be your 
hosts for the Barbecue Party. Then back to 
Durham, where the Durham Druggists Asso- 
ciation will sponsor a dance at the Armorj-, 
with Dean Hudson and his "Morning 
Toastchee Time" House of Lance orches- 
tra to provide the music. 

Save some energy for the last day, be- 
cause there will be lots to do. A fashion 
show sponsored by the Belk-Leggett Stores 
and a bridge-luncheon sponsored by South- 
ern Dairies will provide the ladies with 
things to do at noon, at the attractive Hope 
Valley Country Club. 

For the men, plans have been made for a 
stag luncheon at the Washington Duke Hotel 
at noon, followed by a stag Golf Tourna- 
ment at the Hope Valley Country Club, with 
a very valuable cup to be presented to the 
winner. The Golf Tournament and trophy 
are provided through the courtesy of the 
Yager Liniment Company. 

The T. M. A. will sponsor a supper, floor 
show, and dance at the Armory auditorium 
on the concluding night of the Convention. 

Plan to come early and visit the School 
of Pharmacy at Chapel Hill. Dean Beard 
is back at work, and he and the other fac- 
ulty members will be more than glad to 
show you around. Duke University will be 
happy, also, to have you visit; and the 
Chesterfield and Lucky Strike Tobacco plants 
should prove to be very interesting. Mr. 
C. T. Council, Dewey Mims, and Floyd 
Goodrich are proud of their modern B. 0. 
plant and will enjoy showing you through 
the very attractive place where umteen 
thousands of B. C. 's are made each day.

Edward Spease, who will address the Convention on the morning of May 15, recently 
joined the staff of The National Association of Retail Druggists in the capacity of Director 
of the newly formed Professional Relations Department. Prior to coming with the 
N. A. R. D., Mr. Spease was Dean of the College of Pharmacy at Western Reserve Uni- 
versity, Cleveland, Ohio, for twenty-four years. 

Pharmacy has long been acquainted with Mr. Spease. Before entering Ohio State 
University, from which he received first his Ph.G. and later his B.S. in Pliannacy, Mr. 
Spease worked in retail drug stores, continuing to do so at odd times and during summers 
until 1916. He was the owner of a drug store for a time. After graduation in 1907, and 
for nine years until becoming Dean at Western Reserve, he was an assistant in the College 
of Pharmacy at Ohio State University, progressing to an assistant professorship and to the 
position of secretary of the college before leaving. 

In his present capacity, Mr. Spease devotes his full time to the promotion of inter- 
professional relations, assisting pharmacists to further their professional departments. 
Contacts with the medical and dental professions also are a part of his many duties, and 
Mr. Spease will seek to improve relations among them and to secure their cooperation in 
matters of interest to the several professions.

The Women's Auxiliary 

Mrs. J. K. Civil, President of the Women's 

Auxiliary, urges you to attend the Durham 


A cordial invitation is extended to all the 
wives and girl friends of the druggists and 
traveling men to attend the Sixty-second 
Annual Convention of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association beginning May 
13 in Durham. 

The Durham druggists, assisted by the 
ladies of the Women 's Auxiliary, have 
planned some delightful entertainment for 
the women and I take this opportunity to 
urge every eligible lady in the State to join 
us in Durham on Tuesday, May 13, for a 
grand get-together once more. Tell your 
husbands to lock up the doors of their 
stores, if necessary, and take three days off 
from the daily grind and head towards 
Durham in your old (or new) car. 

The business session of the State Auxil- 
iary will be held at 11 a.m. on May 14. I 
hope all the women attending the Conven- 
tion will pay their dollar and join the Auxil- 
iary as this fee goes directly to the Phar- 
macy Student Loan Fund at' Chapel Hill to 
help some worthy young man or woman who 
needs financial assistance. 

So, ladies, come early and plan to throw 
care to the winds for three glorious days 

in Durham. Let May 13 be your lucky

The 1941 Graduates 

This year the State University School 
of Pharmacy will graduate one of the 
largest classes in years. Although a 
number of the graduates have already 
been placed, there are still some of the 
students who are seeking work in the 
retail drug stores of this State; some as 
registered pharmacists, others as assis- 
tants until they secure the necessary 
training to take the complete examina- 

If you need a pharmacist or can use 
one of the four-year graduates who has 
not had the years practical experience 
required by the Board of Pharmacy, 
write W. J. Smith, Drawer 151, Chapel 
Hill, and he will put you in touch with 
one of the students. 

A number of the graduates this year 
are ladies who, besides being useful in 
the prescription department, can help 

you with your book work, the cosmetic 
department, etc. 

The graduates will be available shortly 
after June 17, the date of the Board of 
Pharmacy examinations. 

Meet Your Friends at the Convention 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


The T. M. A., organized in Hendersonville in 1914, has played an important part in 
the growth and success of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association. In addition to 
the splendid work which they do towards advertising the Convention each year, their 
"Annual Jamboree" which will be the final entertainment program of the 1941 meeting, 
has developed into one of the highlights of the entire meeting. With the active support 
of every T. M. A. member, the organization has certainly been able to achieve its 
objective: Cooperation with North Carolina Druggists and Promotion of Good Fellow- 
ship Among Salesmen Soliciting Drug Trade in North Carolina.

Phil Suttlemyre, Son of Mr. and Mrs. 

P. J. Suttlemyre, of Hickory, Works 

on Terry Toon Movie Short 

Ever think how many drawings are neces- 
sary to make the animated cartoon charac- 
ters that flit across today's motion picture 
screens seem real? 

Hundreds is putting it mildly, according 
to Phil Suttlemyre of Hickory, who re- 
turned this afternoon to Brooklyn, N. Y., 
to resume his studies at Pratt Institute. He 
spent this week in Hickory with his parents, 
Mr. and Mrs. P. Johnson Suttlemyre. 

Phil was one of about a hundred workers 
who turned out the Terry Toon short, ''Fish- 
ing Made Easy, ' ' now running at a local 
theater. That animated cartoon feature was 
completed in seven working days, Phil ex- 
plained, after The Record had learned by 
the grapevine method that the Hickory 
youth had a hand in the production of the 
movie feature. 

He said the standard speed for separate 
drawings flashed on the screen to make a 
cartoon "animated" is about twenty-four 
per second. Thus for an eight-minute fea- 
ture approximately 11,520 drawings would 
be necessary. 

Last February Phil worked under Paul 
Terry, originator of this particular feature, 
for a month — his work in Terry's studio 
counting on his scholastic requirements at 
Pratt. The Institute encourages practical 
experience, along with theoretical training. 

Most of the Terry Toons are completed 
within two weeks, the workers getting a five- 
day week. There are a number of ' ' ani- 
mators, ' ' but to rise to this rank one has 
to Avork there for at least a year, Phil said. 
This group makes an original drawing, 
which is photographed to determine whether 
the character looks natural enough to pass 
for a pseudo-human being or animal. If 
given the okay, the photographed drawing is 
then traced by other workers on celluloid. 

The reason for the celluloid is to econo- 
mize on drawing time and effort. If opaque 
material were used, the backgrounds would 
Iiave to be drawn, painted, and photographed 

each time a scene is used. As it is, only 
the figures are drawn many times, with 
slight changes, to give the effect of motion. 

When all the drawings have been com- 
pleted, they are put together and synchro- 
nized. The orchestration for the animated 
cartoon has been arranged beforehand, the 
young Hickory man explained, adding that 
the music might be pretty unusual if selected 
to fit the cartoon instead of the cartoon 
to fit the music. 

Although Phil enjoyed his month in 
Terry 's studio, he is really interested in 
illustrations. He is enrolled in the illus- 
trations school of Pratt Institute, this de- 
partment having about seven hundred stu- 
dents. The entire student body at Pratt, 
including night students, numbers five thou- 
sand. — Hickory Daily Record.

R. J. Darden of Clinton Wins 
Pharmacy Test Merchandise 

E. J. Darden, pharmacist with Joe Rey- 
nolds, Inc. of Clinton, was the first person 
to send in a correct list of answers to the 
problems published in the April issue of the 
Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. Merchan- 
dise valued at $1.00 has already been sent to 
the winner. Doctor E. A. Brecht of Chapel 
Hill correctly solved all of the problems but 
declined to accept the prize due to the fact 
he had a copy of the April issue before the 
Journal was mailed from Chapel Hill. 

In addition to Mr. Darden and Doctor 
Brecht the following individuals sent in a 
correct list of answers: G. P. Thornton of 
Goldsboro, H. M. Cooke, Jr. of Winston- 
Salem, Ernest Brown of Greenville, Dorothy 
Taylor of Clinton, South Carolina, and W. 
S. Wolfe of Mount Airy. 

The correct answers to the problems are: 
(a) $2.00 and 54%; (b) 21c and 67%; and 
(c) $1.56.

In addition to accepting the new duties 
of this office. Pharmacist Bennett has filed 
in the race for mayor of his city, the elec- 
tion to take place May 6. The slogan, 
"Ask Bennett — He Knows," is familiar 
to Swain County citizens and should serve 
as good campaign material in his political 

To top all this, Mr. Bennett is completely

The University Pharmacy Senate 

Fred Dees, Jr. 

The Spring Quarter activities of the 
Senate had a good start with two new 
members being accepted. They were Harry 
Allen, Jr. of Cherryville and Jessie Stewart 

of Wallace. Both made a short talk at 
their first meeting. Mr. Allen's talk was 
on the New Hampshire Bill affecting Phar- 
macy standards and Mr. Stewart's talk was 
on narcotic addicts. 

At the last meeting of the Senate, Bryan 
Whitford gave a very interesting summary 
of the recent trip to the Eli Lilly Plant 
in Indianapolis. Beginning with the de- 
parture from Durham, he described in de- 
tail the many interesting features of the 
trip. Accompanying his talk was a short 
movie taken on the trip. These were shown 
by Mr. W. J. Smith and proved to be an 
excellent supplement to Mr. Whitford 's talk. 

The Senate has voted to have a display at 
the coming convention of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association in Durham. The 
scheme of the Right and Wrong Way to 
Compound Prescriptions will be carried out. 
We take this opportunity to urge all readers 
of the Journal who will be at the Con- 
vention to inspect this and the many other 
displays that will be presented.

"I. P. Scribe, M. D." 

A new feature of the Journal scheduled 
to begin with the June issue is "I.P. Scribe, 
M.D., " a comical character drawn especially 
for this publication by pharmacist J. Louis 
Cobb of Mount Olive. Each of the cartoon 
drawings will depict a funny incident in the 
life of this pharmaceutical-minded individ- 

Mr. Cobb has unusual abilities as an 
artist — one of his paintings now hangs in 
the library of the State University School 
of Pharmacy — in addition to being a first- 
class pharmacist. One of his water color 
drawings titled ' * Research ' ' hangs in the 
office of the Carolina Journal of Phar- 
macy and is highly prized by the writer. 

Mr. Cobb's son, Jimmy, who is an honor 
student at Mount Olive High School has just 
received notice from Honorable Graham 
Barden that he has been appointed 2nd al- 
ternate appointee for U. S. A. Naval 
Academy at Annapolis. 

Durham Druggists' Association 

S. O. Brewer, President of the Durham 
Druggists' Association, announced the or- 
ganization would actively participate in the 
Retail Drug Institute program following a 
discussion of the Institute by club members 
at the E. B. Morris Cafe on the night of 
March 26. Ralph Rogers, Chairman; S. O. 
Brewer, D. L. Boone, Sr., E. G. Green and 
I. T. Reamer will serve as the Local Advis- 
ory Committee in setting up the Institute 
in Durham. 

Tentative plans for the 1941 Convention 
of the N. C. P. A. to be held in Durham 
in May were announced by I. T. Reamer, 
Local Secretary. It was announced that 
hundreds of prizes for the Convention had 
already been received from 123 manufac- 
turing concerns and that more were expected 

F. O. Bowman and W. J. Smith of 
Chapel Hill were guest speakers of the local

April Report Charlotte Druggists 

Mrs. Philip Tan Every 
Corresponding Secretary 

"Variety is the spice of life," so this 
month we gathered for lunch in the private 
room in Etird's Department Store. The 
food was "Just What The Doctor Ordered," 
so let's get on with our meeting. 

Mrs. Edwards, our president, Avas un- 
usually gay and peppy and gave us a grand 
send-otf. Mrs. Yearwood, our secretary- 
treasurer, was just as spic-span and smart 
looking as always and after calling the roll 
for a fair-sized crowd and reading the 
minutes, gave the treasurer 's report. 

Balance in treasury $62.88 

Voted to give to Student 

Loan Fund 50.00 

Expenses 4.14 

Paid into treasury 1.00 

Total Balance $ 9.74 

We think we 're ending our year fairly 
wealthy, don 't you ? We are so happy over 
jriving $50.00 to the Student Loan Fund, 
it is certainly a worthy cause. 

Mrs. Joe Monroe, who was chairman of 
the nominating committee, presented their 
slate of officers. They were all unanimou.sly 
fleeted. Mrs. L. E. Earnhardt will be our 
new President. Her husband is a registered 
pharmacist but has traveled for the past 
four years for Armour. Mrs. Earnhardt is 
very pretty and popular and we know she'll 
make a grand president. 

Mrs. A. K. Hardee, one of our recent 
members, was elected Vice-President. Tier 
liusband bought Louis Holmes Drug Store 
on Selwyn Ave. Mrs. Hardee is fair to 
^aze upon. 

Mrs. J. M. Still will be our new secretary- 
treasurer. Bonner is most attractive and 
has the real "drug spirit." Joe is one 
of the "Travelers." 

Mrs. R. E. Cornelius is our new corres- 

ponding secretary. Her husband owns a 
Service Cut Eate Store on East Morehead. 
She's also young and lovely as well as the 
other officers; so '41- '42 should be a grand 
year for us. 

Mrs. John CiA^il, our state-president, told 
us all the plans for the convention in Dur- 
ham May 13th, 14th and 15th. We are all 
so excited we cai> hardly wait, and I know 
our auxiliary will be well represented. 

Looking Glass: Mrs. J. L. Sisk looking 
like an ad for Harper's Bazaar in black 
and Avhite with a ' ' snazzy ' ' black straw. 
Mrs. D. C. Lisk in a new spring suit and a 
snappy new hat. Straws seemed to prevail. 
Mrs. E. H. Hemmle had on a cunning blue 

Eye Spied Item^: 

Mrs. Joe Monroe wearing a striking plaid 
suit with a natural straw hat. Mrs. E. I. 
Butler in powder blue with antique tan ac- 
cessories. Mrs. A. K. Hardee in a soft 
gray suit. Mrs. R. E. Cornelius in rose. 
The beauteous Mrs. Louis Holmes in a red 
straw hat. Perfect for the real brunette 
that she is. Mrs. L. E. Earnhardt in blue. 
Mrs. Walter Dixon in a lovely print. This 
month's bouquets go to Mrs. S. P. Hall 
and Mrs. S. A. Beatty. Their husbands are 
representatives of Burwcll and Dunn. ilrs. 
Hall and Mrs. Beatty are always present 
at every meeting and are both most attrac- 

We've a balance of $4.79 for our tlower 
fund ; so it will pay some of you to get sick. 

From My Xofehook : 

In a special notebook I keep statements 
that I have found useful in trying to get 
a "far horizon's" view of life and work. 
This is one of my favorites: 

"Make no little plans; they have no 
magic to stir men 's blood and will not be 
realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope 
and work, rcmenil)ering that a noble and 
logical plan will never die, but long after 
we are gone will l)e a living tiling." — Lita 

Our next meeting will be May 20th and 
we'll all be full of the convention; so we'll 
see you in Durham.

North Carolina News Notes 

C. p. Harper of Selma, wlio was struck 
by an automobile and knocked to the pave- 
ment on March 31, is slowly improving at 
the Carolina-General Hospital in Wilson, 
where he was rushed immediately after the 
accident. Mr. Harper, while crossing the 
street to extinguish the lights on his car 
he had left burning, was struck by an auto- 
mobile. He suffered a fracture of the right 
hip and a head injury. 

W. L. Barnhill, Wilson pharmacist, was 
appointed on April 4 to the board of alder- 
men for the sixth ward to fill the term 
created by the General Assembly when it 
enacted a bill splitting the first ward of 

First Lieutenant James M. Hall, Jx. of 
Wilmington has replaced Captain Joseph 
E. Cheek as Commander of Company I, 
120th Infantry, now stationed at Fort Jack- 
son, S. C. Lieutenant Hall will be pro- 
moted to the rank of captain in the near 

Ferguson's Service Drug Store, located in 
the Capital City at 11 South Dawson Street, 
was formally opened on April 9. The pro- 
prietor, John S. Ferguson, has been in the 
drug business in Raleigh for the past thir- 
teen years. 

With the advent of Spring political issues 
once again provide material for debate, es- 
pecially among those pharmacists in the 
State who are running for reelection in the 
municipal contests. Word reaches this office 
that Ralph E. Kibler of Morganton has been 
reelected as alderman of Ward No. 1. The 
Morganton News-Herald, commenting on 
Kibler's re-election, had this to say about 
alderman-pharmacist Kibler: "His victory 
brings to Kibler what is believed to be a 
record for continuous service on the town 
board, at least for this generation. His 
success extends his tenure over a period of 
three administrations. He was first named 
by appointment in October, 1933, to succeed 
the late James A. Claywell, on the board 
headed by Doctor James W. Vernon as 
mayor, and was re-elected with the same 
board in 1935, and again in 1937 when 
Mayor Bristol and the present board took 
office. He was again re-elected in 1939, 

and begins now another term with an en- 
tirely new board but under the same mayor 
with whom he has served for the past four 

Yates E. Spake, proprietor of The Spake 
Pharmacy of Morganton, was elected Alder- 
man from Ward No. 4 to serve on the 
Board with Pharmacist Kibler. Mr. Spake, 
unopposed in his Ward, lead the ticket with 
1,140 votes. 

Mayors Earl Tate of Lenoir and E. E. 
Missildine of Tryon are also running for 
re-election this year. 

New blond fixtures and fluorescent light- 
ing have been installed in Parker's Drug 
Store of Murphy. The newly redecorated 
store occupies but one half of the former 
space, previously one of the largest drug 
stores in Western North Carolina, in order 
to give Pharmacist R. S. Parker an oppor- 
tunity to render more efficient service in 
serving the drug needs of his community. 

On Friday, April 4, Doctor E. F. Kelly, 
Secretary of the American Pharmaceutical 
Association, addressed the students and fac- 
ulty of the University of North Carolina 
School of Pharmacy on "The Place of 
Pharmacy in the National Defense Pro- 
gram." The speaker discussed the subject 
in detail following which an Open Forum 
was held to give his listeners an opportunity 
to ask questions regarding commissions in 
the Army, draft deferment, etc. Doctor 
Kelly visited friends in Carthage before 
returning to Washington. 

"Wayne County Eetail Druggists Associa- 
tion" is the name of the recently organized 
drug group in that Eastern North Carolina 
county. Officers elected to serve during 
the coming year are: J. T. Vinson, Presi- 
dent; Shelton Brown, Vice-President and 
T. R, Robinson, Jr., Secretary-Treasurer. 
Joe HoUingswoTth of Mount Airy and W. J. 
Smith of Chapel Hill were guest speakers 
of the Association at their regular monthly 
meeting in Goldsboro on Thursday, April 3. 
In addition to the druggists of Goldsboro, 
W. E. Lewis and J. L. Cobb of Mount 
Olive and W. Y. Whitley of Fremont at- 
tended the meeting.

tory as practice material. H. H. (Ham 
Harrison) states that such words as Crocus, 
Zingiberis and Hexamethylenamine have a 

rhythmic tone ou a telegraph key and oscil- 

Honorable J. Melville Broughton, Gover- 
nor of North Carolina, commissioned Marion

J. 0. Hendricks has resigned as prescrip- 
tionist at Charlotte Street Pharmacy, Ashe- 
ville, and plans to open his own store in 
Canton by May 1. 

C. J. Anderson of Highlands has just

J. S. Nance, member of the Charlotte City 
Council for the last six years, announced 
April 17 that he would not seek re-election. 
"I'd like to run again," said Mr. Nance. 
"This election contest is getting to be fine; 
it'll be a lot of fun. Yes, I'd like to get in 
it. But I have decided that I just can't 
spare the time from my business. I've got 
to make a living."

J. W. Sheppard, long identified with the 
drug business in Charlotte, is now con- 
nected with the Victory Drug Store of 
South Gastonia. 

Two of our younger pharmacists have 
purchased drug stores in Gastonia during 
recent months. Fred M. Moss of Cramerton 
has purchased the Firestone Drug Store and 
H. C. Bell, formerly of Spindale, the Frank- 
lin Drug Store. In both instances the new 
owners have stocked the stores with mer- 
chandise, made improvements in the fixtures 
and displays, and report good business for 
the first three months of 1941. 

The Durham Drug Company of Durham 
will soon have a new front — estimated to 
cost $1,500. 

Mr. and Mrs. W. Lee Moose and W. J. 
Smith were luncheon guests of I. T. Reamer, 

Duke Hospital pharmacist, on April 15 fol- 
lowing which Mr. Moose lectured to a class 
of third-year medical students of Duke Uni- 
versity. Pharmacist Reamer, the regular 
lecturer, has been doing a splendid job of 
giving the medical students some of the 
basic principals of drug medication and 
prescription writing. 

J. C. Williams, formerly connected with 
the Central Drug Store of Bessemer City, is 
now Avith the Kings Mountain Drug Co. 
Although working in Kings Mountain, Mr. 
Williams still retains his home in Bessemer 

Anyone in the Shelby area can tell you 
what an energetic pharmacist Paul Webb is 
in and out of the store. No sooner had this 
reporter suggested to Mr. Webb that he 
would like to visit Grover — a town located 
about nine miles from Shelby — than we were 
on our way in what Mr. Webb termed his 
"delivery truck" — a Packard about nineteen 
feet long with enough chronium fittings to 
make Mr. Eoekymorgan green with envy. 
Arriving in Grover we entered the drug 
store. We weren't in the store more than 
30 seconds before Pharmacist Webb had ap- 
proached a customer, sold her a jar of bleach 
cream and turned the money over to the 
astonished proprietor. If your spirits are 
beginning to sag and the world looks blue, 
visit this pharmacist who, by his enthusiasm 

and pep, enjoys living and who, incidentally, 
operates with his son a very successful inde- 
pendent drug store. 

"Some Practical Drug Store Problems" 
was the subject of an address delivered by 
President Joe Hollingsworth of the Associa- 
tion before a meeting of the Student Branch 
of the N. C. P. A. in Chapel Hill recently. 
Mr. Hollingsworth told the students of some 
problems which he had encountered in the 
operation of drug stores and how they had 
been solved. After having delivered one of 
the most interesting lectures of the current 
school year, the speaker was held for an 
additional half-hour by the students who 
desired further information about jobs, 
prescription pricing, women in pharmacy, 
controlled lines, etc. 

J. R. Brownie of the Doctor Miles Labora- 
tories opened a hotel window in Charlotte 
and in flu enza. After a short illness — he 
said he had a bottle of Alka-Seltzer handy — 
he is calling on his drug friends once again. 

W. B. Lennon, salesman for Robert R. 
Bellamy & Son, has recently moved to 1300 
Evergreen Avenue, Goldsboro.

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Our Modern Methods of 

Sam W. McFalls, Greensboro 

(Continued from February and March issues of 
the Journal. Copies of the complete article may 
be obtained from the Carolina Journal of 
Pharmacy, Drawer 151, Chapel Hill.) 

2. Vegetable Gums — Gum tragacanth, 
gum acacia, gum karaya, and Irish Moss 
are the gums most frequently used in con- 
traceptive jellies. Differences in the grade 
of tragacanth as well as the method of 
manufacture may produce large variations 
in the physical properties of the mucilage 
formed/^ Gum acacia forms a viscous colloi- 
dal aqueous solution which can create foam 
quite readily. Gum karaya forms a dis- 
persion in water, Avith physical properties 
which have been likened to those of the 
white of an egg, Avith respect to motility. 
Karaya gum slowly breaks down forming 
acetic acid.^'' Irish Moss or Chondrus eris- 
pus, is derived from a variety of seaweed. 
When boiled with water and allowed to cool, 
it will produce a jelly which liquefies at a 
fairly low temperature, but the meeting 
point may be raised by the addition of gum 
acacia, sugar or various salts. 

3. Invert Sugar — The fructose which is in 
the invert sugars has a particularly marked 
effect on increasing the strength of boric 
acid solution. 

4. Soaps — Common soaps as sodium oleate 
and sodium palmitate are not ordinarily 
used in contraceptive jellies, but recently 
triethanolamine stearate soaps have been 
employed as vehicles in contraceptive 
"cremes." These soaps are excellent emulsi- 
fiers and tend to foam quite readily. 

5. Acids — It has long been known that 
acidity plays a definite but limited role in 
determining the spermicidal effectiveness of 
contraceptive jellies. Consequently, a large 
number of commercial products are distinct- 
ly acidic and depend upon this property 
for much of their spermicidal effect. It 
should be emphasized, however, that the 
initial acidity of a jelly is not the determin- 
ing factor. The spermicidal power depends 
on the final pH (symbol for acidity 
strength) attained after dilution by vaginal 
fluids (pH equals 4.0 to 4.7 normally). 
Acidic properties are also of importance 
with regard to immediate or potential irri- 
tation of mucous membrane. Clinics using 

acidic jellies are likely to receive com- 
plaints from certain number of patients. 

a. Boric Acid — The value of boric acid 
in a contraceptive jelly is based largely on 
its mildly anticeptic and preservative prop- 
erties. In the concentration used in jellies, 
from 2 to 5 per cent, it is considered harm- 

b. Lactic Acid — Lactic acid is considered 
a decidedly stronger acid than boric acid. 
It has been used with confidence in its harm- 
lessness because it is usually present in the 
vagina at a concentration of about 0.5 per 
cent, and is generally used in jellies in a 
strength of 1 to 2 per cent. 

c. Citric Acid — The pH solutions of citric 
acid and lactic acid are of the same con- 
centration, on a percentage basis, is of the 
same order of magnitude. The two acids 
have about the same spermicidal killing 
properties. The use of citric acid in jellies 
is sometimes avoided because it permits 
mold growth. 

6. Aluminum Salts — Salts of aluminum, 
especially alum (potassium aluminum sul- 
fate) are commonly used as spermicides in 
contraceptive jellies. In solution alum gives 
an acidic reaction. A 3 per cent solution, 

for example, has a pH of 3.2. ■ 

7. Formaldehyde and Paraformaldehyde ^ 
— Formaldehyde and its polymer, para- 
formaldehyde, are reported by Baker to be 

of equal spermicidal strength. Upon heat- 
ing, or in the presence of water, para- 
formaldehyde changes to formaldehyde. The 
use of formaldehyde has been limited by its 
knoAvn harmful effect upon tissues. 

8. Oxyquinoline Sulfate — "Chiuosol," 
which is essentially oxyquinoline sulfate, is 
very commonly used in contraceptive jellies. 
It is weakly spermicidal. It is present in 
0.10 to 0.05 per cent in many proprietary 
jelly products. 

This list of ingredients just outlined show 
to be inadequate, which is due to the many 
products that are patented and the formulas 
are kept secret by the manufacturers.

This year. National First Aid Week falls 
between the dates of May 18 and May 24, 
inclusive, and retail druggists from Maine 
to California are making preparations to 
cash in on the event. Even before the pub- 
licity kits prepared by The National Asso- 
ciation of Eetail Druggists were ready for 
distribution, orders began pouring into the 
Cliicago headquarters; and Secretary John 
W. Dargavel confidently predicts that this 
year's participation will break all former 

"For twenty years National First Aid 
Week, sponsored by this and cooperating 
associations of retail druggists, has been 
observed ; and as a result of this activity 
the public has become aware of the import- 
ance of first aid," said Mr. Dargavel. "This 
j-ear's slogan, 'Be prepared,' was a happy 
thought on the part of Dean E. Miller, 

Chairman of the National First Aid Week 
Committee. In the midst of a national pre- 
paredness effort of unprecedented magni- 
tude, people are more aware than ever be- 
fore, of the necessity of conserving human 
life by reducing the number of fatalities 
resulting from accidental injury. National 
First Aid Week is one of the important 
contributions the retail druggists of the 
country are making to the government's 
preparedness program." 

The publicity kit, which is supplied with- 
out charge to any member of the National 
Association of Eetail Druggists who applies 
therefor, contains radio spot announcements; 
three news articles to be released at one 
week intervals to the local newspapers; 
manuscripts for three speeches suitable for 
delivery by retail druggists or others, by 
radio or before local luncheon clubs, parent- 
teacher associations, school assemblies and 
other bodies, and requiring five, ten and fif- 
teen minutes, respectively, for delivery; a 
"man-on-the-street" interview for radio or 
other delivery; a dramatic skit, suitable for 
similar treatment; a proposed Mayor's 
Proclamation; full explanation of the Na- 
tional First Aid Week Window Display 
Contest, instructions for retail druggists 
who wish to compete for the prizes offered, 
and photographic reproductions of prize- 
winning windows in former similar contests. 

As in previous years, contesting druggists 
in each state will be required to submit 
photographs of their window displays to 
their state pharmaceutical association, whose 
officers will pick the two best and send them 
to the National First Aid Week Committee, 
who will cause them to be judged by com- 
petent judges. The grand prize is a trophy, 
which will be given this year for the third 
time by the Federal Wholesale Druggists 
Association; and in addition ten certificates 
of honorable mention will be awarded. 

Eetail druggists are urged to get in 
touch with manufacturers as soon as pos- 
sible, to obtain free store and window dis- 
play materials; to take steps to interest 
school authorities, boy and girl scout 
troops, fire departments, civic organizations, 
and the pu1)lic generally; and to acquaint 
tiieir own salespeople with the plan.

Association Goes on Record as Favoring Convoying Aid to Britain; Ralph Rogers of 
Durham Installed as President; Doctor Zoeller Re-elected to Board of Pharmacy 

Immediately following adjournment of the joint session of the N. C. P. 
A. and its Anxiliary bodies, the T. M. A. and the Women's Auxiliary, Pres- 
ident Joe Hollingsworth gave a comprehensive report of the activities of the 
Association during the past year. He declared, in the course of his address 
delivered before one of the largest initial delegations in the history of the 
organization that "the country needs our help as never before. It is no time 
for us to dwell upon theory but we must face the facts as they are." 

Rease Inge, Southern Sales Manager of E. R. Squibb and Sons, and 
Congressman Carl T. Durham, also appeared on the program during the 
opening session. 

In his talk on "Customer Relations as Applied to the Retail Drug Store," 
Mr. Inge told the delegates that "with Fair Trade in effect, business in the 
future will not be done on a price basis but on a favorable customer relations 
basis." Congressman Durham, a member of the Military Affairs Committee, 
discussed the National Defense Program and assured his audience that he 
was supporting the defense program in detail for the safety of his constituency. 

A number of pharmacy books were awarded at the close of the first 
session, the major prize going to H. C. McAllister of ('hapel Hill. The books, 
valued at $100, were donated through the courtesy of Peabody Drug Com])any. 

A special thirty-minute program of songs and skits arranged by Chair- 
man E. G. Green of the Entertainment Committee, was attended by a large, 
appreciative audience just prior to the President's Reception and Dance, 
which completed the activities for the first daj'. 

Reports by F. W. Hancock, Secretary-Treasurer of the North Carolina 
Board of Pharmacy, and E. V. Stephenson of the Meml)ership Committee 
together with addresses by J. F. Goodrich, Secretary-Treasurer of the T. M. 
A., Aksel Knudstrup, District Engineer of Hygracle Sylvania Corporation, 
and W. Lee Moose, Itinerant Instructor in Pharmacy, featured the second 
session of the Convention. 

Mr. Hancock reported that Jesse M. Pike of Concord won the Boal i)rize 
for 1940. The address on "Fluorescent Lighting" by Mr. Knudstrup brought 
forth a large number of inquiries from his audience, showing the interest 
pharmacists are now taking in this subject. The speaker cautioned his hearers 
to investigate carefully the reliability of firms before purchasing fluorescent 
equipment since much substandard merchandise was now being sold. Mr. 
Moose explained certain provisions of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act as

it relates to the labeling and sale of certain drugs and stated that the De- 
partment of Agriculture expects to promulgate new regulations after con- 
ference with the Board of Health and the Board of Pharmacy. Floyd Good- 
rich very capably presented his subject of "How to Do a Better Selling 
Job in the Drug Store." Floyd has been visiting drug stores in this state 
for the past twenty years and knows our problems as few others do. We hope 
to carry his complete address in a future issue of the Carolina Journal of 

The program presented by W. Lee Moose, Chairman of the Practical 
Pharmacy and Dispensing Committee, on Wednesday afternoon, was well 
attended. A dramatization of some practical problems encountered in the 
average prescription department was presented under the title "Dr. X 
Calling." Also appearing on this program were Prof. Henry M. Burlage 
of the State University School of Pharmacy who discussed "Elixir of Thia- 
mine Hydrochloride"; J. W. Snowden of Pictorial Paper Package Corpora- 
tion who spoke on "Interprofessional Relations"; and W. Lee Moose who 
discussed the Retail Drug Institute. At the conclusion of the program, C. 
H. Smith, President of the T. M. A., delivered a brief address. 

After adjournment of the afternoon session the delegates were invited 
to Chapel Hill where they were served an old-fashioned barbecue with all 
the trimmings. Dr. M. L. Jacobs of Chapel Hill was in charge of the ar- 
rangements for this event, which was given through the courtesy of B. C. 
Remedj^ Co. Then back to Durham where the delegates danced to the music 
of Dean Hudson, and his orchestra at the Durham Armory. 

Just prior to the opening of the fourth session on Thursday morning 
Professor I. Q., assisted by D. L. Boone, Jr., of the Prize Committee, dis- 
tributed awards to a number of individuals who successfully answered a series 
of questions dealing with pharmacy in North Carolina. Taking part in this 
event were : J. T. Vinson of Goldsboro, Joe G. King of Chattanooga, 0. S. 
Matthews of Roseboro, S. M. Edwards of Ayden, Charles James of Hillsboro, 
J. S. Rudisill of Forest City, W. C. Simmons of Winston-Salem, Paul Webb 
of Shelby, C. C. Fordham, Jr., of Greensboro and A. B. Kunkle of Conover. 
The jackpot question, "Who was the first president of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association?, was incorrectly answered by all ten contestants. 

Due to an unusually crowded program on the previous afternoon, At- 
torney F. 0. Bowman presented his Annual Report immediately following 
the Professor I.Q. Program. The Report, listing in detail all the legislative 
activities of the Association during the 1941 General Assembly, will be pub- 
lished in the Proceedings Issue of the Journal at a later date. C. C. Ford- 
ham, Jr., Chairman, and F. 0. Bowman, Executive Secretary of the Fair 
Trade Committee, discussed their work in connection with Fair Trade during 
the past year. E. W. O'Hanlon of Winston-Salem and John Goode of Ashe- 
ville both strongly urged the delegates not to become self-complacent about 
Fair Trade lest they lose it. 

In addition to several other reports by committee chairmen during the 
morning, Edward Spease of the N. A. R. D. addressed the Convention on 
methods for promoting the prescription department, listing in detail several 
plans which he had worked out for this particular purpose. 

The last speaker on the fourth session was A. G. McPherson of Bauer 
and Black who discussed "How to Merchandise Surgical Dressings." Mr. 
McPherson and the three speakers who followed him on the program were 
secured through arrangement with the T. M. A. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 103 

A stag luncheon at Convention Headquarters immediateh' following ad- 
journment of the Fourth Session was attended by 480 delegates. Durham 
Dairies. Durham Ice Cream Company, Long Meadow Dairies and the Durham 
Druggists Association provided this delightful event of the day. 

The T. M. A., continuing their program from the morning session, pre- 
sented the following three speakers during the fifth and final session of the 
Convention : Howard Trumbull, General Merchandising Manager of Owens- 
Illinois Glass Company who spoke on "Who Dictates the Size of Your 
Profits"; Thomas Edward Hicks, President of Personal Products Company, 
whose subject Avas "Merchandising: The Retailer and the Manufacturer" 
and W. J. Quinlan of the Prophylactic Brush Compan}^ who discussed 
"Streamlined Merchandising by Manufacturer, Wholesaler and Retailer." 
J. W. Bennick of Charlotte was enthusiastically applauded at the conclusion 
of the program for having arranged the appearance of the four merchandising 

The Convention, unable to decide on a place for the next meeting, del- 
egated the task to the Executive Committee. At this point Assistant Secretary- 
Treasurer C. M. Andrews announced that 1036 persons had registered for the 
Convention and that eleven applications for membership in the N. C. P. A. 
had been received during the past two days. 

The Convention acted favorabl}^ on the following resolutions: (1) To 
charge visitors a registration fee of $2.50; (2) To oppose repeal of the 
Tydings-Miller Act; (3) To favor convoying war materials to England; (4) 
To urge Congress to pass the Kefauver bill which provides a tax differential 
between pure ethyl alcohol for non-beverage purposes and distilled spirits 
for beverage use; (5) To urge Governor J. Melville Broughton to allocate 
funds for the enforcement of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act; (6) To 
thank the Lance Company for providing a nationally known orchestra for 
the Convention without cost; and (7) To express appreciation to Convention 

Doctor E. y. Zoeller was re-elected a member of the North Carolina Board 
of Pharmacy for a five-j'ear term. 

The following are the nominees for offices during 1942-43 : For Pres- 
ident, Paul Bissette of Wilson and John C. Brantley, Jr., of Raleigh; 
for First Vice-President, R. P. Lyon of Charlotte and W. M. Salley of 
Asheville; for Second Vice-President, T. G. Crutchfield of Greensboro and 
Paul Thompson of Fairmont; for Third Vice-President, N. O. McDowell 
of Scotland Neck and E. C. Daniel of Zebulon ; for Member of the Executive 
Committee for a three-year term, Ralph Rogers of Durliam and J. V. Far- 
rington of Hickory. 

Officers of the Association inducted into office during the final session 
included Ralph P. Rogers of Durham, President; John C. Brantley, Jr., of 
Raleigh, First Vice-President; W. M. SaUcy of Asheville, Second Vice-Pres- 
ident; T. G. Crutchfield of Greensboro, Third Vice-President and Joe Hol- 
lingsworth of Mount Airy, Member of the Executive Committee for a three- 
year term. 

Topping off two days and nights of adivity the T. M. A. staged a huge 
"Jamboree" in the Durham Armory attended by over 1000 guests. A first- 
class floor show from New York and Dean Hudson's "Morning ToasTchee 
Time" orchestra were on hand to make this an enjoyable occasion. During 
the course of the dinner, which immediately preceded the floor show, J. 
Floyd Goodrich introduced many officials of the participating organizations 
who were present for the festivities. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

The Durham drug trade was 100% represented on the final night of the 
Convention due to the fact that all the drug stores in the city closed at 6:30 
P.M. to allow their employees to attend. This is believed to be a "first" in 
the history of the Association. 

Before returning to Mount Airy, former President Joe Hollingsworth 
received many well-deserved comments on his work for the Association during 
the past year, for his lengthy report covering the activities of the Association 
during 1940-41 and for the efficient manner in which he conducted the 
Convention sessions this year. After having been closely associated with Mr. 
Hollingsworth for the past year in visiting druggists from Murphy to Manteo, 
this officer fully subscribes to the above and believes there are few men in 
pharmacy who have a more earnest desire to further their profession than 
does Joe Hollingsworth of Mount Airy. 

Lee Moose Addresses Medical Society 

W. Lee Moose, Itinerant Instructor in 
Pharmacy, spoke to the members of the 
Medical Society of North Carolina during 
the Eighty-eighth Annual Session of this 
organization in Pinehurst, May 19, 20 and 
21. Mr. Moose's address, "An Explanation 
of the State and Federal Food, Drug and 
Cosmetic Act," was favorably received by 
the physicians in attendance. The speaker 
gave particular attention to the require- 
ments surrounding the sale of dangerous 
drugs and cautioned his hearers not to send 
patients to drug stores without first pro- 
viding them with a prescription. 

For the first time in several years the 
Association installed a scientific exhibit in 
the Convention Hotel. Material for the ex- 
hibit, which had as its central theme "Gas- 
tric Antacids," was supplied to the Asso- 
ciation through the courtesy of the Com- 
mittee of Eevision of The Pharmacopoeia of 
the United States and the Journal of The 
American Medical Association. Many phy- 
sicians visited the exhibit during the three- 
day meeting and requested further informa- 
tion concerning the use of official medicines. 
The last session of the meeting was at- 
tended by the following North Carolina 
pharmacists: C. C. Fordham, Jr., member 
of the North Carolina Board of Health, 
Ralph Rogers, President of the N. C. P. A., 
I. T. Reamer of Duke Hospital and H. C. 
McAllister of the Board of Pharmacy. 

The Secretary-Treasurer of the Associa- 
tion, in addition to installing and supervis- 
ing the exhibit, spoke to the House of Dele- 
gates of the Medical Society on May 19. 


For several years Roger McDuffie of 
Greensboro has been Chairman of the Reso- 
lutions Committee, a position which he has 
most efficiently and creditably filled. Not 
being content with his labors this year, he 
offered two memberships in the Association 
to the members of the graduating class at 
the State University School of Pharmacy 
who submitted the best resolutions on (1) 
Convoying of United States Aid to Britain 
and (2) Appreciation to Durham Hosts. 

From the resolutions submitted to the 
Committee by the students, those by Bryan 
H. Whitford of Washington and Josephine 
Eldridge of Carrboro were adjudged the 

For stimulating interest in the proper 
method for preparing a resolution, we ex- 
tend to Mr. McDuffie a sincere ' ' Thank 
you. ' ' 

Cecil Donates Display Case to 
School of Pharmacy 

A. C. Cecil of High Point recently pre- 
sented the School of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill, 
with a six foot glass-paneled case for dis- 
playing drug sundries. Mr. Cecil, who re- 
cently visited the School in the capacity as 
Chairman of the N. C. P. A. Visitation 
Committee, recognized the need for such a 
display case and generously donated it him- 

By means of this gift the school authori- 
ties will be able to display and familiarize 
the students with many drug sundries which 
they will be expected to sell later on. The 
donation is a most worthy one which the 
faculty of the School deeply appreciates.

Pharmacy: Today and Tomorrow 

By Paui, Bissette, of Wilson 
(Address delivered to the Student Branch of the N. C. P. A.) 

While I am fully conscious of the honor 
that has been bestowed upon me by being 
invited to address the Pharmacy School of 
this great University, I would like to say to 
you in the very beginning that if you ex- 
pect a glowing picture of your opportunities 
and possibilities you may be a bit disap- 
pointed. There are opportunities, yes, and 
possibilities galore but please accept my 
word when I say, "The lights are not all 
green on this highway. ' ' 

Somehow, I'm afraid that the average 
pharmacy student has conjured up a pic- 
ture of his professional future that is some- 
what more glamorous than the one I feel 
it my duty to paint here tonight. 


All of you are students of and some of 
you ^vill soon graduate from one of the 
best pharmacy schools in America. You 

have, I am sure, spent a year in intensive 
study. You, no doubt, visualize some sort 
of a pharmaceutical Utopia in which most 
of your time will be spent filling prescrip- 
tions, talking to doctors and talking to 
customers about prescriptions. If the soda 
man should yell at you, "Hey, Bill, how's 
about making this fellow a ham sandwich?" 
you will probably become indignant. I 
know, too, of your resentment of the moss- 
covered story about the pharmacy student 
who flunked on sandwiches and salads. 

Now, let's understand each other. . , . 
I believe that most of you expect some day 
to have a store of your own or certainly 
to become manager of a drug store of some 
kind. But please remember this: until you 
can make better ice cream sodas and sand- 
wiches than your soda man, until you know 
more about cigars than your cigar man, 
more about cosmetics than the cosmetic 
girl and more about photography than the 
camera man, you will not be qualified to 
be either a store manager or a store owner, 
"i'our future in pharmacy will depend en- 
tirely upon how well you take advantage 
of your first five years in a retail drug 
store. When j'ou pass your state board ex- 
amination, you will be given a position as 
a registered pharmacist. You need have no 
fear about that. There happens to be a 
demand for pharmacists that is greater than 
the supply . . . but more about that later. 

What is the average salary of the aver- 
age pharmacist serving as a prescription 
ilcrk today? You know the answer to that 
question just as well as I do. You people 
are too ambitious to be satisfied with just 
being a prescription clerk the rest of your 
life, so let's see what your possibilities are 
for advancing from that point. My mother 
(God bless her) came very near ruining 
whatever possibilities I may have had. 
When I'd come home from a hard day at 
the store, she would put her arm around 
me and say, "Paul, you're working yourself

A Note of Thanks 

The Sixty-Second Annual Convention 
of the N. C. P. A. has come and gone 
but the memory of the unselfish sacri- 
fice which many of the druggists and 
their wives made to make this meeting 
a most successful one will linger in the 
mind of the writer for years to come. 

To Mr. Reamer, the efficient Local 
Secretary who gave nearly a month of 
his time in organization work, to the 
membership of the Local Committees who 
capably did the work assigned them, to 
the T. M. A. and the Women's Auxiliary 
for their valuable assistance in creating 
interest in the meeting and to the manu- 
facturers and local concerns who, in any 
measure, helped to make this meeting a 
most instructive and entertaining one, I 
offer my most sincere thanks. 

The writer doubly appreciates the man- 
ner in which the Durham Convention was 
handled this year by Mr. Reamer and his 
assistants after having visited another 
convention where the speakers could not 
be seen nor heard due to faulty lighting 
and no amplifying system. 

The Durham drug trade deserves the 
praise of the entire Association member- 
ship for having staged a grand conven- 
tion; one that will require a lot of hard 
work to equal or surpass in the future. — 
W. J. Smith. 

Mrs. C. C. Fordham, Jr., Elected 
President Women's Auxiliary 

Mrs. C. C. Fordham, .Jr., of Greensboro 
was elected President of the Women's Aux- 
iliary for the ensuing year at a meeting of 
the organization in Durham on Wednesday, 
May 14. 

Officers elected to serve with Mrs. Ford- 
ham during the year are : First Vice-Presi- 
dent, Mrs. Philip Van Every, Charlotte; 
Second Vice-President, Mrs. Philip Gattis, 
Raleigh; Secretary-Treasurer, Mrs. Thomas 
G. Crutchfield of Greensboro; Parliamen- 
tarian, Mrs. D. D. Hocutt of Henderson and 
Historian, Mrs. M. L. Jacobs of Chapel Hill. 

As a token of appreciation for her leader- 
ship of the Auxiliary during the past year, 
Mrs. John K. Civil of Charlotte was pre- 
sented a gift at the close of the session. 

The auxiliary session was featured by re- 
ports from various committees and an ad- 
dress on the "Pharmacy Student Loan 
Fund" by Professor Ira W. Rose of the 
State University School of Pharmacy.

The University Pharmacy Senate 

Fred Dees, Jr. 

With the end of the current school year 
just two weeks away, we would like to pause 
a moment and look back on the activities 
and accomplishments of the Senate at the 
end of its first full year of existence. Early 
in the year, the constitution was completed 
and adopted and each member was given a 
copy. An official key was adopted and is 
now available to all members and alumni 
members. During the Winter Quarter the 
Senate was given official recognition by the 
University. At the recent N. C. P. A. Con- 
vention in Durham the Senate presented a 
display on "The Eight and Wrong Way to 
Compound Prescriptions." The many com- 
pliments on the display by visiting phar- 
macists were greatly appreciated by the 
members of the Senate. In addition to these 
activities, at every meeting of the Senate 
short talks and discussions were given on 
many scientific and practical phases of 
pharmacy. We feel that these discussions 
have been extremely beneficial to us as stu- 
dents and have given us a clearer insight 
on the intricate practice of Pharmacj'. 

Possibly some of the readers of the 
Journal are not quite clear as to what 
the Pharmacy Senate is and what its pur- 
poses are. To help clarify this we quote 
from the Constitution of the Senate: "It 
shall be the purpose of the Pharmacy Sen- 
ate: to stimulate and foster an increased 
knowledge and appreciation of Pharmacy by 
the free discussion of its various phases; 
to develop the responsibility and self-con- 
fidence of leadcrshi]!, not only in respect to 
Pliarmacy but ahso in respect to the com- 
munity, by affording the opportunity to 
learn the art of prepared and impromptu 
speech ; and to ])romote inter-class friend- 
ship and coojioration witliin the Scliool of 

And so with the closing of the school year, 
the Senate suspends its activities until 
school opens again in September. Unless 
we are drafted we will again greet you from 
these pages. In the meantime, however, we 
wish the Pliarmacists of North Carolina a 
happy and prosperous Summer. 

Student Branch Elects Officers 
for 1941-'42 

Albert Mattocks of Greensboro was elected 
President of the Student Branch of the 
N. C. P. A. for tke school year 1941-'42 
during a recent election held at the State 
University School of Pharmacy. Elected to 
serve with Mr. Mattocks during the coming 
year were: Margaret Lloyd of Chapel Hill, 
Vice-President; Marsha Hood of Kinston, 
Secretary; Mack Herrin of Clinton, Treas- 
urer and Fred Dees of Burgaw, Executive 
Council Member. 

Secretary David McGowau of the Branch 
reports seven meetings during the past year

The Visit to the Lilly Laboratories 

By H. M. BURLAGE, Profesor of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill 

During the spring vacation, a small but 
enthusiastic group of students from the 
School of Pharmacy left Durham by spe- 
cial coach and was accompanied by Mr. 
J. D. Smith, tlie Lilly representative in 
this region, Mr. S. E. Fort, the district 
passenger agent for the Norfolk and West- 
ern Eailroad, and Heniy M. Burlage of the 
School of Pharmacy. The students Avent 
prepared for cold weather as the region to 
which they were journeying had had a se- 
vere blizzard a short time before. They 
were, however, enjoyably surprised to find 
upon their arrival in Indianapolis on 
Wednesday morning that the temperature 
was as moderate as in Chapel Hill. 

Activities began immediately upon ar- 
rivjil and the group was greeted by Mr. 
T. A. Bunch of the Lilly Laboratories. At 
noon transportation by special bus took us 
along the Old National Road to Cifaldi's 
Villa Nova where a fried chicken dinner as 
delectable as that of the South was served. 
From here the students were taken to the 
Biological Laboratories where lecturers and 
demonstrations were given illustrating the 
production of smallpox vaccine, diphtheria 
antitoxin and other biologicals, their filtra- 
tion and preservation preliminary to pack- 
aging. While here the gieenhouses were 
visited where seedlings of belladonna, hen- 
bane and digitalis were seen to grow in 
quantities for a large scale production of 
the drugs that are rapidly growing scarce. 

The remainder of the afternoon Avas 
spent in sightseeing, which included Butler 
University with one of the nation's largest 
field houses, the Speedway and the beauti- 
ful and impressive Indiana World War Me- 
morial. After an enjoyable dinner in the 
evening an api)ropriate lecture on vitamins 
and vitamin deficiencies was delivered by 
Mr. A. J. E. LeBien of the Sales Depart- 

On Thursday, the delegation was wel- 
comed at the Lilly plant by Mr. J. K. 
Lilly, Jr., Vice-President of the organ- 
ization, and was then divided into small 

groups of four or five persons conducted 
by competent guides through the plant. 

Space will not permit a description of the 
many interesting procedures and processes, 
machines and apparatus that were in the 
extensive research laboratories, the various 
manufacturing, packaging and labelling de- 
partments. Of special interest were the in- 
sulin and the liver extract plants, the replica 
of tlie original laboratories, the galenical 
departments with its huge percolators. 

Tlie day ended all too quickly although 
it was a tired group that embarked for 
home on the 5:45 P.M. train, where dinner 
was served. An hour's wait both going and 
coming gave opportunity to see the sights 
of Cincinnati. On our arrival in Durham 
on Friday, it was agreed that the trip was 
well worth the time, money and energies 
tliat were expended. 

Eli Lilly and Company is to be congratu- 
lated for offering to more than 5,000 phar-^ 
macists and pharmaceutical students and 
physicians annually the opportunity to ob- 
serve the progress that has and is being 
nuide in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals 
on a commercial scale. The Justice Drug 
Company is to be thanked for its interest 
in contributing funds to help make this trip 

Copies of Convention Program 

Delegates attending the Sixty-second An- 
nual Meeting of the N. C. P. A. in Durham- 
this year highly comi)limented the Local 
Secretary, T. T. Reamer, who designed a

istrants. The program has deckle edges of 
different colors with a front cover contain- 
ing an Qtching of Howell Hall of Pharmacy, 
("hapel Hill. 

The B. ('. Remedy C-oiniiany very gener- 
ously allowed one of their staff artists, Mr. 
Watts Fowler, to prej)are the etching with- 
out cost to the Association. 

Copies of the program may be obtained 
from tlie Secretary of the Association as 
long as the supply lasts.

Proposed Excise Taxes 

The following excerpt is taken from a 
statement of John L. Sullivan, Secretary of 
the Treasury, before the Ways and Means 
'Committee of the National House of Repre- 
sentatives, proposing many new excise taxes 
and increases in some existing ones. Should 
this program of taxation be incorporated in 
the present tax laws, it is doubted if any 
group would be so hard hit as will be retail 

Study this proposal of the Treasury De- 
partment carefully and then communicate 
with your Representatives in Washington. 
Obviously, the Government must have bil- 
lions more to carry on the Great National 
Defense Program. At the same time, how- 
ever, we feel that a more equitable tax pro- 
gram to produce this revenue should be 
found. If there must be a tax of this 
nature, then why should the Government not 
adopt a general sales tax levy, applicable 
to all classes? Such a program would cer- 
tainly be more equitable and would produce 
much more revenue. 

"In the field of excise taxation, it is pro- 
posed that a number of new taxes be im- 
posed and the rates of some existing taxes 
be increased. We have endeavored to avoid 
excises which would fall on the basic neces- 
sities of life and excises which, while pro- 
ductive, would constitute an increase in the 
cost of doing business and thus would be 
passed on to the Government and to the 
public in general price increases. We have, 
however, selected certain luxury articles 
which, though widely used, are not necessi- 
ties. It is suggested that in the light of 
our over-all revenue requirements the users 
of these articles may now be asked to pay 
additional taxes. The list of these excises 
is limited by the difficulty of finding com- 
modities consumed in sufficient quantities 
to bring in revenue commensurate with the 

expense of administration. Undoubtedly, 
the Committee will want to consider the pos- 
sibility of adding other commodities to the 

"It is suggested that an additional IV2 
cents a package be added to the tax on 
cigarettes and that the rates on cigars, 
tobacco and snuff, not increased since 1918, 
be doubled. These increases will yield ap- 
proximately $200 million. 

"In the category of liquor taxation, it is 
proposed to impose an additional tax of $1 
per gallon on distilled spirits, $1 per barrel 
on fermented malt liquors, and a 16 2/3 
percent increase on wines, cordials and 
liqueurs, these three classes to yield collec- 
tively $178 million. 

"Otlier increases in existing excises and 
new excises to yield $867 million are pro- 
posed in accordance with the folloAving

N. B. MOURY of Greensboro 

J. C. Powell (Van Pelt and Brown) of 
Winston-Salem recently gave a dinner party 
for the pharmacists of that city at the 
Cavalier Cafe. Mr. Powell stated that it 
was his hope that the dinner would inaugu- 
rate similar gatherings of drug salesmen 
and pharmacists in the future so that they 
might mutually discuss problems affecting 
the group as a whole. 

In addition to the usual exhibits of sur- 
gical appliances. X-ray equipment, etc., the 
following drug manufacturers were in at- 
tendance at the recent meeting of the Medi- 
cal Society of North Carolina in Pinehurst: 
The Borden Company, Ciba Pharmaceutical 
Products, Inc., C. B. Fleet Company, Lederle 
Laboratories, Inc., Harrower Laboratory, 
Inc., Holland-Rantos Company, Inc., Eli 
Lilly and Co., M. & R. Dietetic Laboratories,

oratories, E. R. Squibb & Sons, Tablerock 
Laboratories, Valentine Company, Inc., Van 
Pelt & Brown, Inc., Winthrop Chemical 
Company, Inc., and John Wyeth & Brother, 

Apparently many of the physicians at- 
tending the meeting had "lagging appe- 
tites" since the most popular drink in evi- 
dence Avas two well-known vitamin B-1 prep- 
arations. Information reaches the writer 
that either of the two preparations, when 
served ice cold as was the case in Pine- 
hurst, make a most refreshing and stimu- 
lating drink. 

The T. M. A. expects to soon distribute 
a revised list of the membership to every 
drug store in the State.

to death." Whoever heard of anybody work- 
ing himself to death in a retail drug store? 
I believe my mother is typical in this 
respect so my estimate is that 25% of 
you will be spoiled by mamas. The wives 
will take care of another 50%. You just 
can't take it. After Mabel or Mary or 
Sue has bawled you out for several months, 
you '11 finally reach the conclusion that it 's 
more important to be home for dinner on 
time than to see that things go right at 
the store. 

Now, in addition to the mamas and 
wives, the government has started to wet- 
nurse her youth. A 40-hour week is all 
right for the fellow who is satisfied to take 
his place in the ranks and march through 
life as a private. But I notice that even 
in the army where they are training offi- 
cers, they get them out of bed at 5:30 in 
the morning and work them till ten at 
night. They realize that if you are going 
to command men, you must have something 
in you and the way to find out whether 
you have it, is to see how much hard work 
you can take. Maybe you think I'm pretty 
hard boiled about all of this, but I 'm not. 
I 've just been observing things. So I say 
to you, there are opportunities in the drug 
business for the taking but you are not 
apt to get any of the plums until you can 
out-work and out-think the boys who start 
up the ladder with you. 

The fellow who does the most complain- 
ing about lack of opportunities is the fellow 
who begins to see his mates step up above 
him and blames it on everything except 
himself. Yes, as I said before, there are 
big jobs aplenty but to get them it takes 
work, and when I say work, I mean work. 

There are opportunities in other fields, 
too. I have here some statistics I believe 
will interest you. This is a composite re- 
port made up from replies to a question- 
naire recently sent out by the N. A. C. D. S. 
to 78 of its manufacture members. These 
78 manufacturers employ 2,760 registered 
pharmacists as laboratory workers, chemists, 
salesmen, detail men and office workers. 

These 78 manufacturers employ in execu- 
tive positions: 
7 Presidents. 

12 Vice-Presidents. 
1 Assistant to Vice-President. 
1 Secretary. 
1 Treasurer. 

25 Sales Managers. 

77 Sales Executives. 

25 Directors, Executives, Superintendents, 
Purchasing Agents, etc. 

19 Department Heads. 
3 Editors. 

At the time I received these figures, re- 
plies had not come in from the three largest 
pharmaceutical manufacturers. That will 
probably give you an idea of the possibili- 
ties in one branch of the industry but, 
after all, I suppose I came here to talk 
about the retail phase of it. 

Eetailing has made a lot of progress in 
the past 25 years. I say 25 years because 
that represents the span of my observation. 
I can truthfully say that each year has 
been a more fascinating one. New interests, 
new products, new methods are constantly 
injecting themselves into the picture, and 
old interests, old products and old methods 
are constantly lending themselves to new 
adaptation. This reminds me of one of the 
most interesting prescription department 
promotions in which it has ever been my 
privilege to participate. It was about 15 
years ago. I Avas a pharmacist in a drug 
store in Wilson. At the same time Carl 
Goereh, who is now editor of the State 
magazine, was editor of The Wilson Mirror, 
a morning newspaper in our town. Carl 
collaborated with me on the campaign 
which, as I recall it, ran for a period of 
16 weeks. What finally evolved after days 
and days of getting our heads and enthu- 
siasms together was a 4-point program 
which included a newspaper advertisement, 
a letter to the doctors, a window display 
and a message to our customers and pros- 
pective customers each week. The newspa- 
per ads were a quarter page in size with a 
lot of white space and a dignified type of 
copy occupying the center of the space 
used. We would, for example, feature the 
fact that all ointments were dispensed in 
collapsible tubes emphasizing the value of 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


having an ointment in an air-tight container 
that will at the same time prevent contami- 
nation. While this copy was being used in 
the newspaper, a window display was in- 
stalled featuring this method of dispensing 
ointments. A personal letter covering this 
sul)ject was sent to each physician in town 
as well as a letter to our customers. Each 
succeeding week a different phase of our 
prescription service was promoted in a 
similar manner. Careful records were kept 
and we found that prescription business had 
more than doubled as a result of our efforts. 
This campaign was also of value in an 
entirely unexpected way. It became neces- 
sary for us to adopt new services and im- 
prove on old methods of dispensing in order 
to have a sufficient number of points of 
superiority around which to build our ad- 

I liave mentioned this incident for two 
reasons: First: because we are now working 
on plans to revamp this same promotion 
and use it again. Which proves, I believe, 
that old methods are .iust as good today as 
they were years ago once they are redressed 
and modernized. Second: that appropriate 
merchandising methods are just as applica- 
ble to the prescription department as to 
any other department in the store and in 
my opinion just as essential. 

I am particularly interested at this time 
in a problem in which I believe we have a 
common interest. When you matriculated 
here at the University you became just as 
much a part of this profession as are your 
instructors, your future employers and 
others who have been associated with it for 
years. I have every reason to believe, there- 
fore, that you are just as interested and 
concerned about its future as is, for in- 
stance, such great builders of pharmacy as 
our own Dr. Grover Beard. National sta- 
tistics indicate that the demand for regis- 
tered pharmacists already exceeds the supply 
by about 600 annually. This in itself is, of 
course, a problem Init the thing I believe 
we should be most concerned about is the 
depreciation in <iuality of the average en- 
trant to American colleges of pharmacy to- 
day. Ladies and gentlemen, it's our job to 
see that not only the ' ' I.Q. ' ' but the social 
standards are raised. One has only to look 

at the refined, intelligent faces I see here 
to realize that this has not yet become a 
problem at Chapel Hill. It is a problem, 
however, in other sections of the country 
and it is our solemn duty to see that it 
does not become one in North Carolina. 
What can you do about it? Well, I'll tell 
you. Most of you know the outstanding 
students in your high schools back home. 
Talk to them about pharmacy. Interest 
them in becoming a part of this great pro- 
fession. Tell them it 's hard. Let them un- 
derstand that it's no "Crip" course but 
that there are jilenty of big jobs in this 
field and we are certainly not turning out 
filling station attendants. 

Sunday night I read in the Xeic York 
Times a review of Robert Nixon "s book, 
Corner Druggist. Yesterday I read a review 
of the same book in the N. A. E. D. Journal. 
For the benefit of those of you Avho haven 't 
read the book, I would like to say that it 
is a biography of the author's father who 
was a druggist of the old school and, as 
much as we will all dislike some of its im- 
plications, it seems to be well on the way 
to the best-seller list. The thing that im- 
pressed me most, and I have lived through 
most of the period covered, was the vast 
change in the personal relationship between 
pharmacist and customer of that day and 
this. As much as we may regret it, we are 
forced to admit that competition, develop- 
ment of advertising methods, mass produc- 
tion and new tax laws have slowly but 
surely forced us into more impersonal meth- 
ods of merchandising. Volume and ever in- 
creasing volume has become necessary to 
combat the constantly rising cost of doing 
business until it requires twice the volume 
of business today to make the same amount 
of money that a druggist was able to make 
2") years ago. Your job, then, as 1 see it, 
is to learn as (juickly as possible the meth- 
ods necessary to produce this all-inijiortant 
volume. I think I can assure you that you 
will fiiul your employer ready and eager to 

If 1 have seemed a bit discouraging, it 
was because I wanted you to know the 
price you would have to pay for the top 
spots in your chosen profession. I told you 
in the beginning that you were going to get 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

a position, and you are. When I see college 
graduates in so many other fields working 
at filling stations for $15.00 a week and 
when I watch the constantly diminishing 
supply of registered pharmacists nationally, 
I am, forced to say to you that you have, 
at least, chosen a safe profession. I hope 
you will not be satisfied with just being 

You ai'e entering a profession which, of- 
fers you a wide field for advancement but 
I would not want you to leave college think- 
ing that at 30 you are going to be a top 
executive. I know that at 21, 30 looks a 
long way off. When you graduate from 
college, you are just beginning your serious 
study and at 30 you are just reaching the 
age where, if you have spent your time 
wisely and industriously, you will have 
qualified yourself to begin to grow into bet- 
ter jobs. 

So, don't be discouraged. When things 
seem tough and you are not getting the 
breaks, your opportunity may be just around 
the corner. But you can gamble on the 
fact that you will never find it unless you 
qualify yourself for it. 

Golf Tournament 

Seventy-five contestants participated in 
the golf tournament held at the Hope Val- 
ley Country Club near Durham on the final 
afternoon of the Sixty-second Annual Con- 
vention of the N". C. P. A. The tournament, 
provided through the courtesy of Yager 
Liniment Company, was open to all men 
registered for the) Convention. I. T. Keamer, 
Local Secretary, awarded prizes to the win- 
ner during the T. M. A. Jamboree. 

Buddy Allgood of Roxboro, in accepting 
the Yager Trophy which he had won, said 
"It was all luck." C. T. Council won a 
Big Ben electric clock and W. L. Johnson 
a golf bag. 

At the head of the T. M. A. list was J. M. 
Cates of Greensboro who won a desk pen 
set. Lynn Davis of Greensboro and H. D. 
Vail of Pinehurst also demonstrated their 
golfing abilities by winning prizes. 

Wade McMaster of Siler City and Frank 
A. Pierson of Durham won first and second 
prizes, respectively, in the visitors' section, 
the first receiving a Yardley set, the latter 
a dozen golf balls. 

Asheville Branch of Women's Aux- 
iliary Holds Monthly Meeting 

Mrs. F. A. Powell, 

Corresponding Secretary 

The Asheville Branch of the Women's 
Auxiliary met in the Green Eoom of the 
S. & W. Cafeteria on May 2 to discuss the 
Sixty-second Annual Meeting of the Asso- 
ciation which many members of the local 
organization plan to attend. 

Mrs. B. L. Meredith, Vice-President, pre- 
sided during a short business session. The 
club decided not to meet during the summer 
and set the first Friday in September as 
the date of the next meeting. 


Casper Smith, Wilson druggist and mem- 
ber of the N. C. P, A. since 1914, died in 
that city on^ May 21 after a short illness. 

For the past 25 years Mr. Smith owned 
and operated the Wilson Drug Company, the 
second oldest in that section of the State. 
Prior to his coming to Wilson, Mr. Smith 
worked in the drug business in Kings Moun- 
tain. He was a native of Lumberton and 
graduated from Trinity College, now Duke 

Surviving Mr. Smith are his wife, his 
mother, Mrs. Lula L. Smith; three brothers, 
Walter and Albert of Lumberton and Her- 
bert T. Smith of White Lake. Funeral serv- 
ices were held Friday, May 23, at the 
Methodist Church, Wilson. 


The marriage of Miss Gertrude Morris of 
Baltimore, Maryland, and John D. Mitchell 
of Charlotte took place* April 12 in Dublin, 

Before coming to North Carolina, the 
bride was associated with the Church Home 
and Infirmary Hospital in Baltimore, Mary- 

The bridegroom is a graduate of the 
State University School of Pharmacy, Class 
of '35, and has been connected with the 
Martin Drug Company of Kannapolis for 
several years. He recently severed his con-^^ 
neetion with this firm to accept a position 
with Sterling Drug Company, Charlotte. 

The couple will be at home at 219 East 
Park Avenue, Charlotte, after June 1.

the '40 Class, -will be interested to hear of 
the marriage of Lloyd Morgan Senter and 
Miss Thelma Durham, both of Carrboro, 
which took place on May 4 at the Carrboro 
Baptist Church. 

After a Avedding trip to Virginia and 
West Virginia the young couple are at home 
to their friends in Carrboro where Mr. 
Senter is associated with his father, P. L.

Information on Selective Service 
for Employers 

For some time tliere has been a rather 
acute shortage of registered pharmacists in 
North Carolina ; a shortage which has been 
intensified by the Selective Service Act. The 
following article, we believe, will answer 
many questions regarding the Selective 
Service System. 

The Selective Service System 

1. It is the purpose of tlie Selective Serv- 
ice System to increase and train the armed 
forces of the United States with the least 
possible disruption of the social and eco- 
nomic life of the Nation. However, it must 
be realized by all that any program con- 
templating compulsory military service must, 
inevitably, cause some inconvenience. This 
will be compensated for by increased nation- 
al security and, undoubtedly, a higher stand- 
ard of citizenship. 

2. It must be borne in mind that all able- 
bodied registrants (with the exception of 
ministers and a limited number of other 
eases designated by law) are liable for train- 
ing for a period of one year. However, since 
the Nation is still at peace and since the 
number required for training is a compara- 
tively small percentage of the total number 
registered, provisions have been made in 
the Act and in the Regulations whereby the 
Local Selective Service Boards may defer 
from training men who have dependents, 
who are necessary in their occupations, or 
who are specifically deferred by law. 

Selective Service and the Employer 

3. It is suggested that each employer 
who is concerned by the possible effects of 
the Selective Service System upon his busi- 
ness (through' the loss of employees) : 

(a) List all registrants in his employ 
who Avere between the ages of 21 and 25 
inclusive on October 16, 1940 (only about 
5% of those registered will be called by 
July 1, 1941) ; 

(b) Deduct from this list all registrants 
who have dependents; 

(c) Make a careful analysis to determine 
which of the remaining registrants can- 
not be immediately replaced if called for 
service ; 

(d) If necessary, arrange to train addi- 
tional men to take the place of those 
who may be called. 

Class II-A Deferments 

4. The Local Board is empowered to 
defer from training "those men whose em- 
ployment in indus-try, agriculture, or other 
occupations or employment, or whose activ- 
ity in other endeavors, is found ... to be 
necessary to the maintenance of the Nation- 
al health, safety or interest." (Sec. 5. (e) 
Selective Training and Service Act of 1940). 
Men so deferred are placed in Class II-A. 

5. A copy of Section XXII, Vol. Ill, 
Selective Service Eegulations, governing the 
granting of Class II-A (occupational) de- 
ferments, is attached. 

6. An employer who desires an employee 
to l)e placed in Class II-A (deferred because 
of occupational necessity) should: 

(a) Arrange for the employee to notify 
the employer when he receives his Selec- 
tive Service Questionnaire ; 

(b) Offer to assist the employee in filling 
in Series IV of the Questionnaire and to 
give the employee any information he de- 
sires in this regard. (Of course, the em- 
ployer may not require the employee to 
accept such assistance) ; 

(c) Fill in and execute an affidavit setting 
forth the facts on which the employer be- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

lieves the employee should be placed in 
Class II-A. (In no case should the em- 
ployer ask for a deferment before the em- 
ployee receives his Questionnaire. In some 
cases, it may be several years before a 
registrant receives his Questionnaire, and 
the Local Board will not consider a re- 
quest for deferment filled prior to the 
time that the registrant comes up for 
classification in accordance with the se- 
quence established by the National Lot- 
tery on October 30.) 

Employer's Request for Deferment 

7. In making a request for the deferment 
of a necessary man, the employer may exe- 
cute his affidavit on a Selective Service 
Form prepared for this purpose (D. S. S. 
Form 42) or he may draft a similar state- 
ment on his own stationery. Copies of D. S. 
S. Form 42 may be secured from the Local 
Board as they are needed. 

8. The registrant has five days in which 
to fill out and return his Questionnaire. The 
employer's affidavit requesting deferment 
may be attached to the Questionnaire or 
mailed directly to the Local Board. In 
either case, the employer's affidavit must 
be sent to the Local Board \vithin five days 
after the Local Board has mailed the Ques- 
tionnaire to the Eegistrant, unless the E«gis- 
trant secures an extension in time from the 
Local Board. 

9. The employer's affidavit should con- 
tain the following information: 

(a) An accurate and full description of 
the employee's job in sufficient detail to 
allow the Local Board to understand fully 
the duties that the individual performs. 

(b) A statement of the relative shortage 
of persons with his special qualifications 
and skills. (This part of the statement 
should include all facts which would assist 
the Local Board in determining the avail- 
ability in that community of persons with 
that particular skill) ; 

(c) The employer should then state any 
facts which support the claim that the 
removal of this employee, without imme- 
diate replacement, would cause a material 

and substantial loss of effectiveness or 
productivity in the employer's enterprise; 
(d) An estimate of the length of time it 
will take to train or otherwise secure a 
replacement for this employee and the 
steps which the employer proposes to take 
to secure such replacement. 

10. In addition to the above facts, which 
go directly to the question in issue, the em- 
ployer should give a brief description of 
his products or services and their usefulness 
and contribution to the employment or well- 
being of the community or Nation. 

11. Further, such affidavits should be di- 
rectly identifiable as applying to the in- 
dividual employee in question by referring 
to him by name and order number exactly 
as entered on the questionnaire. 

Nature of Occupational Deferments 

12. A deferment is not an exemption. It 
is a stay for the purpose of giving the em- 
ployer time to train or otherwise secure a 
replacement. The Local Board will attempt 
to fix the period of deferment as that length 
of time in which the employer could reason- 
ably be expected to so train or secure a re- 
placement. At the termination of the de- 
ferment period the individual 's case will 
come up before the Local Board for re- 
classification. At this time it will be in- 
cumbent upon the employer to restate the 
relationship of the employee to the enter- 
prise. All the facts contained in the origi- 
nal affidavit will again be open for determi- 
nation by the Local Board. Therefore, the 
employer should make every effort possible 
in the intervening period to train or secure 
a replacement, so that the registrant may be 
inducted for his year's training. 

Reporting Changes in Status 

13. The employee is required to report 
to the Local Board any change in his status 
which would affect his classification within 
five days of any such change. Where an em- 
ployer has submitted an affidavit to a Local 
Board, there is an equal responsibility upon 
the employer to notify the Local Board as 
to any material change in the facts as stated 
therein. Obviously, a change in a regis- 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


trant's job, cessation of work, promotion or 
demotion or a change in labor supply may 
easily change his occupational status so as 

(a) Void any present deferment; 

(b) Justify a further deferment; 

(c) Justify a request for occupational de- 
ferment which had not been previously 

Appeal from the Decision of Local Boards 

14. Paragraph 370, Vol. Ill, Selective 
Service Regulations, prescribes the procedure 
for appeals. That part of the Regulations 
which will be of interest is quoted below: 

"The registrant, any person who claims 
to be a dependent of the registrant, a gov- 
ernment appeal agent, the Director of Selec- 
tive Service or the State Director of Selec- 
tive Service may appeal to the Board of 
Appeal from any local board classification, 
except that no appeal may be made by, or 
on behalf of, a registrant classified in Class 
II or Class III who claims a lower classifi- 
cation. ' ' 

15. In other words, the employer himself 
may not appeal where his claim for occu- 
pational deferment has been refused by the 
Local Board. However, a government ap- 
peal agent is assigned to each Local Board 
to protect the interests of the Government 
or the registrant, and he may and will ap- 
peal cases where he believes the national 
interest to be involved. 

When to Replace a Selected Employee 

16. Selected registrants will be given at 
least five days in which to take care of 
their private affairs before induction into 
the armed forces. However, it is possible 
that a selected man will be rejected by the 
Army because of failure to pass the Army 
physical examination or for otlicr reasons. 

17. Therefore, it would seem proper that 
a selected employee should not be perma- 
nently replaced until after he has been ac- 
cepted by the armed forces. Otherwise, if 
he were rejected, he might return to his 
community to find his employment gone. 

Failure to meet the rigid physical require- 
ments of the armed forces should not preju- 
dice an employer against re-hiring an em- 


Classification and Selection 

Class Two: Occupational Deferments. 

350. General Rules for Classification of 

Class 1 1- A 

a. On the local board is placed the respon- 
sibility of deciding which men should be 
deferred because of their civilian activi- 
ties. It is in the national interest and 
of paramount importance to our national 
defense that civilian activities which are 
contributing to the national health, safety 
and interest should be disrupted as little 
as possible, consistent wth the funda- 
mental purpose of the Selective Training 
and Service Act. 

b. Section 5-(e) of the Selective Training 
and Service Act isrovides: "No defer- 
ment from training and service shall be 
made in the case of any individual except 
upon the basis of the status of such in- 
dividual, and no deferment shall be made 
of individuals by occupational group or 
groups of individuals in any plant or in- 
stitution. ' ' 

c. The local board may avail itself of the 
assistance of all Federal, State or local 
agencies (such as the State Employment 
Service, State Advisors on Occupational 
Deferments, county agricultural agents, or 
others) to obtain information in cases of 
occupational deferments. The local board 
may request the State Employment Serv- 
ice to assign an agent to it for the pur- 
pose of securing such information.

sary man" in industry, business, employ-

WARNING -Sale of Drugs 

Frederick O. Bowman 

From reliable sources we have learned 
that agents of the Federal Food and Drug 
Administration are to swoop do^vn on the 
retail druggists of this State to investigate 
"over-the-counter selling of drugs regarded 
as dangerous unless adequately labeled to 
warn against their misuse." 

Following a nation-wide check-up to de- 
termine the extent of the practice of selling 
dangerous drugs over the counter, the F. 
D. A. has issued citations to a large num- 
ber of druggists, directing them to show 
cause why they should not be prosecuted 
under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act for 
selling misbranded products. It is likely 
that many more citations will be made and 
the prosecutions will be instituted in a 
number of cases. It is understood that the 
F. D. A. is ready, willing, even anxious to 
take to the Supreme Court of the United 
States a test case of its .jurisdiction of over- 
the-counter sales of drugs it believes danger- 
ous for indiscriminate distriljution to lay- 

From time to time over a period of more 
than a year, the Journal has carried warn- 
ings regarding the sale of dangerous drugs, 
and has endeavored to keej) its readers ad- 
vised concerning new rulings and interpre- 
tations in connection with the Food, Drug 
and Cosmetic Act. Regardless of this, how- 
ever, it has come to our attention that many 
druggists are paying no attention whatever 
to the warnings and have made little or no 
effort in trying to familiarize themselves 
Avith either the law or the regulations i)ro- 
mulgated thereunder. 

We are publisliing again a list of the 
dangerous drugs, furnished through the N. 
A. B. D. Journal by our Washington Eep- 
resentative, Rowland Jones, Jr., and we 
strongly urge that they be sold only on 
physicians' prescriptions. 

These Drugs are Classed as Dangerous 

Other cinehophen derivatives 
Cantharides (for internal use) 

Benzedrine Sulfate (for internal adminis- 

Clirysarol)in or goa powder

Other Restricted Drugs 

Narcotic and hypnotic drugs and their 
preparations, which are not in the "danger- 
ous" list, should be dispensed over the 
counter only if they are labeled with the 
legend: "WARNING: May be habit-form- 
ing." The drugs so designated thus far, 
which should be so labeled and which have 
not been placed in the "dangerous drug" 
classification, are 

Alpha eucaine 








together with any chemical derivatives of 
these drugs. 

In this habit-forming list, very few prob- 
lems will arise for the retail druggist, be- 
cause most of them never would be sold 
over the counter in any event. However, 
every druggist should be aware of the re- 

The marihuana drugs (cannabis) are 
covered in other laws, and the narcotics 
covered by the Harrison Law are also in a 
separate classification, and should be dis- 
pensed only on physicians' prescriptions by 
druggists having the required special tax 

Revised Labeling Regulations 

The F. D. C. A. Administrator on April 
to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic 
Act, to become effective October 7th, 1941. 

Retail druggists will be particularly con- 
cerned with the regulations, amending Sec- 
tion 502 (f) dealing with the labeling 
directions for use of drugs and devices, 
which are furnished below: 

Section 502 (f) 
A. Label Directions for Use 

Directions for use may be inadequate by 
reason (among other reasons) of omission, 
in whole or in part, or incorrect specifica- 
tion of : 

(1) directions for use in all conditions 
for which such drug or device is prescribed, 
recommended, or suggested in its labeling, 
or in its advertising disseminated or spon- 
sored by or on behalf of its manufacturer 
or packer, or in such other conditions, if 
any there be, for which such drug or device 
is commonly and effectively used ; 

(2) quantity of dose (including quanti- 
ties for persons of different ages and differ- 
ent physical conditions) ; 

(3) frequency of administration or appli- 

(4) duration of administration or appli- 
cation ; 

(5) time of administration or application 
(in relation to time of meals, time of onset 
of symptoms, or other time factor) ; 

(6) route or method of administration or 
application ; or 

(7) preparation for use (shaking, dilu- 
tion, adjustment of temperature, or other 
manipulation or process). 

B. Prescription, Doctors' Use 

A shipment or other delivery of a drug 
or device shall be exempt from compliance 
with the requirement of clause (1) of sec- 
tion 502 (f) of the Act if: 

(1) Such shipment or delivery- is made 
for use exclusively by or on the prescrip- 
tion of physicians, dentists, or veterinarians 
licensed by law to administer or apply such 
drug or device ; 

(2) Adequate directions for so using such 
drug or device are available in scientific 
publications or otherwise ; 

(3) The label of such drug or device 
bears the statement "Caution: To be used 
only by or on the prescription of a . . . ," 
or "Caution: To be used only by a ... ," 
blank to be filled in by the word "Physi- 
cian," "Dentist," or "Veterinarian," or any 
combination of two or all of such words, 
as the case may be ; 

(4) No representation appears in the 
labeling of such drug or device with respect 
to the conditions for which it is to be used; 

(5) In the case of a drug which is not 
designated solely by a name recognized in 
an official compendium and which is fabri- 
cated from two or more ingredients, its 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


label also bears the quant it j' or proportion 
of each active ingredient. 

Such exemption shall remain valid until 
all of such shipment or delivery is used by 
physicians, dentists or veterinarians licensed 
by law to administer or apply such drug 
or device, or is dispensed upon, and under 
labels hearing the directions for use speci- 
fied in, prescriptions of such physicians, 
dentists or veterinarians. But if such ship- 
ment or delivery, or any part thereof, is 
otherwise disposed of as a drug or device, 
such exemption shall thereupon expire. The 
causing Ijy any person of such an exemp- 
tion so to expire shall be considered to be 
an act of misbranding for which such per- 
son shall be liable unless, prior to such 
disposition, such drug or device is relabeled 
to comply with clause (1) of section 502 
(f ) of the Act. 

C. Manufacturing Use 

A shipment or other delivery of a drug 
or device shall also be exempt from com- 
pliance with the requirements of clause (1) 
of section 502 (f) of the Act: 

(1) With respect to directions for com- 
mon uses, adequate directions for which are 
known by the ordinary individual ; or 

(2) If the label of such drug or device 
bears the statement "For manufacturing use 
only," and the labeling thereof contains no 
representation with respect to the effect of 
such drug or device; and if such shipment 
or delivery is made for use exclusively in 
the manufacture of another drug or device. 
But an exemption under subparagraph (2) 
shall expire if such shipment or delivery, or 
any part thereof, is otherwise disjjosed of 
as a drug or device. The causing by any 
person of such an exemption so to expire 
shall be considered to be an act of mis- 
branding for which such j)erson shall be 
liable unless, prior to such disjjosition, such 
drug or device is relabeled to comply with 
clause (1) of section 502 (f) of the Act.

Bowman Heads Organization to Buy 
Ambulance Ship for Britain 

F. O. Bowman, cliairman; Governor J. M. 
Broughton, honorary chairman and George 
Ross Pou, treasurer of the Old North State 
Fund formally opened on June 18 a State- 
wide campaign to raise approximately $75,- 
000 for the purchase and delivery of an 
ambulance plane to Britain. The ambu- 
lance will be of the amphibian type with 
facilities for caring for four stretcher eases, 
two sitting cases, medical attendant or co- 

In coiniiK'ntiiig upon the j)lans of the Old 
North State Fund, State Chairman Bowman 
states "it is the purpose of this strictlj' 
humanitarian organization to sponsor the 
gift of a completely equipped, approved 
type aerial ambulance to the people of the 
British Isles by the citizens of the Old 
North State. With the assistance of the 
British-American Ambulance Corps, which 
has rendered valiant service in supplying 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

England with ambulances and medical equip- 
ment, our executive committee has perfected 
plans which will allow our citizens to have 
a part in making this needed gift a reality." 

According to plans as revealed by Chair- 
man Bowman, the Old North State Fund 
will direct the State-wide financial campaign 
from headquarters in Ealeigh with the sup- 
port of local committees in each county of 
the State. 

In response to an invitation from Gover- 
nor Broughton, several hundred prominent 
citizens from various sections of the State 
have accepted membership on the organi- 
zation's advisory committee and will assist 
the executive committee. 

Forty-Pound Catch — Here is the record 40-

Coke Cecil Experiences His Biggest 
Thrill at Fishing 

A. Coke Cecil, High Point druggist, has 
done quite a bit of fishing during his ex- 
tensive travels, but he declared here today 
that it remained for his home state of 
North Carolina to give him the thrill of a 

He and Mrs. Cecil have just returned 
from a visit to the island home of F. E. 

Stedman at Ocracoke on the Outer Banks. 
A few days ago the party went surf-casting 
with the nationally known guide Sommers 
Spencer. Location selected was the beach 
at Ocracoke Inlet, where the open ocean 
meets Pamlico Sound and within a few 
hundred feet of where the famous pirate 
Blaekbeard was finally run down and killed 
early in 1700. 

Cecil was telling one of the stories for 
which he is famous when he was interrupted 
by a tug on his line and he went into action 
in a hurry. In a few minutes it was amply 
apparent that this was no ordinary size of 
channel bass. It cut out through the surf 
in terrific bursts of speed and power, zipping 
150 yards of line from the reel. Cecil fought 
up and down the beach with the pole bend- 
ing nearly double for 25 minutes, and, de- 
ciding he had enough, gave the pole to Sted- 
man, who Avas standing by. Finally Sted- 
man got the fish near the seine, but a final 
run took it out again to deep water. Twenty 
minutes later Stedman, as tired as the fish, 
landed it on the beach — a forty-pound chan- 
nel bass. 

This was the first channel bass of the 
1941 Ocracoke season caught on hook and 
line, and the largest first fish of the season 
within the memory of the oldest inhabitants. 
The fish actually Aveighed between 42 and 
43 pounds when landed. Cecil had the fish 
iced and brought it back to Higli Point as 
concrete evidence of his story. — Kigh Point 

Hollingsworth and Guests Picnic 
at Fancy Gap 

A picnic luncheon of the first order was 
enjoyed by North Carolina drugdom's most 
eligible bachelor, Mr. Joe Hollingsworth of 
Mount Airy, and nine guests at Fancy 
Gap, a lofty mountain located near the 
Virginia-Carolina line, on May 25. 

Taking part in the day's activities were 
Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Fordham, Jr., and their 
two sons, Mr. and Mrs. Eoger McDuffie and 
their son, Mrs. McDuffie's sister, Miss Caro- 
lyn Cox, all of Greensboro, and Mr. Hol- 

Although it had been years since he had 
done any mountain climbing, Mr. McDuffie 
reports that he was climbing like a moun- 
tain goat before the day ended. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Scott Drug Company of Charlotte 
was inadvertently omitted from the 
list of contributors to the Sixty-second 
Annual Meeting of the N. C. P. A. 
as published in the June issue of the 
Carolina Journal of Pharmacy. We 
deeply regret this error occurred and 
want the many friends of Scott Drug 
Company to know they contributed a 
handsome fitted bag which was used as 
a major prize at the ladies' bridge 

The addition of Scott Drug Company 
to the list of contributors makes a grand 
total of 250 firms who co-operated with 
Mr. D. L. Boone, Jr., and his Committee 
on Prizes this year — a record of which 
Mr. Boone may well be proud. 

Tom Hood of Dunn Elected District 

Thomas R. Hood, Dunn pharmacist and 
prominent leader of the Dunn Rotary Club, 
was unanimously elected Governor of the 
188th Rotary District for 1941-42 at the 
annual district conference held in Pine- 
hurst recently. He was placed in nomina- 
tion by Doctor Robert M. Olive of the 
Fayetteville Club who described Mr. Hood 
as "the outstanding Rotarian of the 188tli 
District in the giving of his services when- 
ever called upon." 

The newly elected Governor has been a 
member of the Dunn Rotary Club for nine 
years, holding a perfect attendance record 
for the past six years; served as club sec- 
retary-treasurer 1935-'36 and 1940-'41; club 
vice-president, 1938-'39; president, 1939-'40 ; 
member board of directors for four years 
and has served the local dul) in practically 
every capacity. He was a member of the 
conference committee 1939-'40-'41 ; publicity 
chairman and conference secretary, 1940-'41 
and has attended every district meeting 
for the past six years. 

Mr. Hood WHS born in 1904; graduated 
from the University of North Carolina 
School of Pharmacy in 1923 and from the 
Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and 
Science in 1924. He is co-owner of the 
Dunn Pharmacy and Hood's Drug Store; 
is a member of the North Carolina Pharma- 

ceutical Association and was vice-president 
of the State Rexall Clubs in 1940. 

The Dunn Dispatch, commenting on Mr. 
Hood's election, had this to say about 
Governor Tommy: "One of the principal 
ol)jects of Rotary is community service and 
in serving the Dunn club he has served the 
community, well and faithfully, too. Now, 
as Governor of the 188th Rotary District, 
comprising 43 clubs throughout the State, 
the leader of Rotarians will lie in a posi- 
tion to serve a greater area. 

"And we know that the 188th District and 
the communities which it serves will benefit 
under the active, progressive leadership of 
a man who is popularly known far and wide 
as 'Tom Hood of Dunn.' 

"His services have meant much to Dunn 
and now the whole district will benefit from 
them. It was a great day for the Rotarians 
when they elected Tom Hood." 

Governor Hood and Mrs. Hood left for 
Colorado Springs on June 3 where they 
attended the assembly for Rotary officials 
on June 8 to 14 and then went to Den- 
ver, Colorado, for the International Rotary 
Convention on June 15 to 20. They will 
be gone for a month.

Lum and Abner Return to Air for 
Miles Lab 

Lum and Abner, the famous Arkansas 
storekeepers wlio operate the "Jot 'em Down 
Store" down in Pine Eidge, long stars on 
both NBC and CBS, have just signed a con- 
tract to broadcast their popular program 
over the newly formed Keystone Broadcast- 
ing System, on behalf of the Miles Labora- 

Several of North Carolina's small town 
stations, heretofore without network affilia- 
tion, have been selected as outlets for Key- 
stone broadcasts of Lum and Abner. They 

WGNC— Gastonia 

WGBE— Goldsboro 

WHKY— Hickory 

WFTC— Kinston 

WMFD— Wilmington 

WGTM— Wilson 

The addition of Lum and Abner to the 

long list of radio programs on the air for 

Alka -Seltzer and One-A-Day Brand Vitamin 

Tablets, should do much to boost the sales 

The Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy 


of these two fast-moving products. Lum 
and Abner have been on the air for over 
ten years for several sponsors and have 
done a splendid job for each. Druggists 
in the towns covered by the broadcasts will 
do well to tie in counter and floor displays, 
and windows with this latest of Miles' ad- 
vertising campaigns. 

New Drug Stores to Open 

I. O. Wilkerson, manager of Liggett's 
Drug Store of Greensboro for the past 7Y> 
years, and Sam W. McFalls, prescriptionist 
for the same organization for the past year, 
will open a new store in Greensboro short- 
ly. The store will be located in the same 
building formerly occupied by the Strat- 
ford-Weatherly Drug Store on the corner 
of North Elm and Gaston Streets. 

The owners plan to install a 30-foot 
soda fountain and fluorescent lighting. The 
prescription department will be located on 
the mezzanine floor. 

Remodeling is already under way on a 
building in Roxboro to house a new drug 
store to be managed by W. W. Allgood 
of that city Avho recently graduated from 
the School of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill. The 
prescription department will be under the 
supervision of Clement Byrd who, until re- 
cently, w'as connected with the Roxboro

Charlotte Druggists' Auxiliary Com- 
pletes Successful Year 

Mrs. R. E. Cornelius, 
Corresponding Secretary 

The final meeting of the Charlotte Drug- 
gists' Auxiliary for the current year was 
held in Ivey's Tea Room on May 20. The 
business session of the meeting was fea- 
tured by the installation of new officers for 
the coming year. 

Mrs. .John K. Civil, Mrs. Leslie Earn- 
hardt and Mrs. J. L. Siske gave such in- 
teresting reports of the State Convention 
that it made all of us determined to be on 
hand when the Association and its affiliated 
bodies meet next year. 

In appreciation of the splendid work 
done by Mrs. T. X. Edwards, our former 
president, the Auxiliary presented her 
with a lovely gift. 

Our meeting was saddened to hear of the 
serious illness of Mrs. Philip Van Every 
but we do hope by now that she is well on 
the road to recovery. 

The Angel Museum 

(T. W. Angel, Jr., of Franklin has been 
collecting historical relics of former days 
until today he has a veritable museum of 
old guns, arrow heads, spinning wheels, In- 
dian pottery, and old documents. On sev- 
eral different occasions I have had the op- 
])ortunity of closely examining these relies 
which are exhibited on the balcony of An- 
gel's Drug Store and found them to be 
quite interesting. It was, therefore, with 
an intimate knowledge of the exhibit that 
I read the article reproduced below which 
is being published in the hope that you, 
too, will find it of interest. — Ed.) 

"That coverlet," said Tommy Angel, "was 
on the loom wlien the Civil War started." 
He was showing the museum articles that 
line the walls of the balcony in his drug 
store, and was raising glimpses through the 
windows of the i)ast that recalled old cus- 
toms and events. 

"My grandmother, Mrs. William Berry, 
and her sister lived on Rabbit Creek then 
and were working on the coverlet together, 
my mother says. The yarn was dyed witli 
walnut dye." 

The soft color and lovely intricate l^it- 
terms were repeated with variations ii» 
other old coverlets that he showed. 

My ej'es wandered and he laughed when 
I said, "What under the sun is that?" He 
picked up a black iron tong-like object and 
opening it placed inside an old pewter spoon 
wliicli fitted exactly. "It's an old spoon 
mold," he answered. "Folks in the old days 
had to make a lot of their own eriui])ment 
\oii know. 'I'hcv made llicir own gun sliot, 

P^om a wall hung with old guns of all 
sizes and fashions he took a leather pouch 
and an old powder horn. From the pouch 
he extracted a bullet mold and a handful of 
large round shot. "Bullets had to be made 
to fit individual guns." 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Cherokee Curios 

He hung the horn and pouch back on the 
wall and showed a box full of shot. "That 
was plowed up," he said, "by Gilmer Jones 
on the old Hall farm, the one-time location 
of a Cherokee Indian village. They were 
probably left by General Rutherford's army 
when he made a raid and destroyed the vil- 
lage. Last year the North Carolina. Histori- 
cal Society placed an historical marker there 
you can see. Broken pieces of pottery, — like 
these — were also found on the field covering 
the old town site." 

Cases of gems, minerals, Indian relics, 
pottery bits, quaint pipes, and rows and 
rows of arrow heads of all sizes range 
along the walls. One oddly shaped pipe 
witli queer tubular copper beads was found 
together with a skeleton beyond the Cozad 
roller mill when the foundation was being 
dug for a house. 

An odd spinning machine told of the in- 
ventiveness of one pioneer and stood to- 
gether with spinning wheels and other 
weaving equipment. Nearby was a hand- 
made toll measure used by a miller to take 
his portion of the grain he milled. It was 
a small wooden basket held together not by 
nails, but only a few tiny wooden pegs and 
cleverly arranged pieces of wood. 

Records of Old Days 

A ragged bullet-shot flag with thirteen 
stars told of long past struggles, and old 
documents told more tales of the past. One 
of the latter is a marriage license written 
in 1866 to Adam and Lettie Angel, free 
colored persons owned prior to emancipa- 
tion of slavery by J. D. Watson of Knox- 
ville, Miss., and S. Enloe of Jackson county, 
N. C, who had "acknowledge they were 
married according to the custom of the 
African race on September 12, 1824. 

Another document yellowed with age was 
a receipt issued in 1833 to Thomas Angel 
by James Angel who had received as part 
of an estate, "one negro boy called Adam, 
valued at $405." — The FranMin Press and 
Tlie Highlands Maconian. 

In a little western village lived one Bill 
Bender, a notorious deadbcat. One day he 
made the mistake of showing some money 

in front of one of his creditors and, after 
considerable argument, paid what he owed. 
Then he demanded a receipt and this is 
what his creditor gave him : 

"To Whom It May Concern, Greeting — 
All men know Ijy these presents, habeas 
corpus and nux vomica, that Bill Bender 
don't owe this firm nothing and ain't going 
to. — John Jones. 

Elixir of Thiamine Hydrochloride 
and Its Stability in Combinations 

Henry M. Burlage*t 

Thiamine, or Vitamin Bi , one of the 
members of the Vitamin B complex, has 
the following allowable claims (1) gener- 
ally conceded to be for therapeutic value: 

(a) it is of value in correcting and pre- 
venting beriberi; 

(b) it is effective in correcting and pre- 
venting lack of appetite (anorexia) of die- 
tary origin in certain cases; 

(c) it is of value in securing optimal 
growth in infants and children ; 

(d) it may be used where there is evi- 
dence of conditions interfering with proper 
assimilation of the vitamin alone ; 

(e) there is some evidence of its value 
in the treatment of certain types of 
neuritis ; 

(f) there is evidence of an increased re- 
ciuirement when there is a greatly aug- 
mented metabolism as in febrile conditions, 
hyperthyroidism or vigorous muscular ac- 

Because of these claims, thiamine is being 
prescribed by the physician in various 
forms. One of these is the elixir and es- 
pecially in the case of neuritis, in combina- 
tion with sodium bromide or phenobarbital. 
The latter combinations were the basis of 
these stability studies. 

Since the elixir is being prescribed in 
large quantities at considerable cost to the 
patient, it might be profitable for the 
pharmacist to prepare such an elixir at a 
considerable saving to the patient. With 
this aim, the National Formulary Committee 

* Professor of Pharmacy, University of North 
Carolina School of Pharmacy. 

t The writer wishes to acknowledge the assist- 
ance of Messrs. G. F. Johnson and K. L. Min- 
niclc of the School of Pharmacy in carrying on a 
portion of this study. 

The, Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


(2) has adopted the following formula for 
tlie 7th edition: 

Thiamine hydrochloride 0.100 g. 

Distilled water 10.00 cc. 

Syrup 250.00 ec. 

Sherry wine, detannated q.s. 

to make 1000.00 cc. 

Dissolve tlie thiamine hydrochloride in 
the water, add the syrup and then the wine 
to make 1000 cc. The pH of the product 
should be adjusted to 4.0. The dose is 
4 cc. or 1 fluid dram. This preparation 
contains 3 mg. or 1000 International Units 
per fluid ounce. 

The New Jersey Formulary (3) recom- 
mends a similar product: 

Thiamine hydrochloride 0.050 g. 

Syrup 125.00 cc. 

Sherry wine 500.00 cc. 

The Maryland Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion suggests the following formulas: 

Thiamine hydrochloride *mg. *mg. 

Distilled water 1.00 ec. 1.00 cc. 

Syrup 30.00 cc. 

Sherry wine, q.s 240.00 cc. 240.00 cc. 

The sherry wine may be replaced by other 
domestic wines to please the patient, by iso- 
alcoholic elixir, or by glycerinated elixir 
or gentian. 

Greengard (4) has recently presented a 
review on the pharmacy of thiamine with 
the following observations : 

(1) Elixirs of this compound ])recipitate 
as thiochrome upon standing at room tem- 
perature for several months. Therefore, 
while this elixir need not be made extem- 
poraneously, it should be made only in 
such quantities so that it may be all dis- 
pensed and consumed within sixty days 
after the date of preparation. 

(2) Little thiochrome is formed at pH 
2 but very ra])idly as pH approaches 7. For 
this reason the National Formulary Com- 
mittee is recommending that the i)H of 
the product be adjusted to 4. 

(3) Because of its palatibility and since 
its pH is about 4, the N.F. Committee 
uses sherry wine, which may contain ap- 
preciable amounts of tannins which will 
precipitate the vitiimin. To avoid this the 
wine may be detannated by the use of 

* This amount is adjusted as directed by the 

freshly i)repared casein or completelj- de- 
fatted and dealbuminized milk. 

(4) The vitamin in aqueous or weakly 
alcoholic solutions may mold on standing 
and this may be prevented by the addition 
of 0.1% benzoic acid. 

(5) The simultaneous administration of 
kaolin or charcoal should be avoided since 
the vitamin is absorbed. 

(6) Thiamine hydrochloride reacts readi- 
ly to most alkaloidal precipitants and hy- 
droxides with the exception of bromides. It 
is further incompatible with mercuric chlo- 
ride, the iodides, carbonates and bicarbo- 
nates, and acetates as white precipitates ; 
with ferrous sulfate as a yellow' crystalline 
substance; with tannic acid and iron and 
ammonium citrate as brown precipitates ; 
with iodine as a red-brown mass; with so- 
dium phosphate and borate, and Fowler's 
solution to produce slight white precipi- 
tates; phenobarbital sodium yields a white 
crystalline sediment. 

This investigation was called to our at- 
tention because of a trend on the part of 
physicians to administer a bromide such 
as sodium bromide, U.S.P. or phenobarbi- 
tal, U.S. P. or its soluble sodium deriva- 
tive with the elixir. 

Preliminary experiments early indicated 
the inadvisability of prescribing sodium 
phenobarbital in tlie elixir because of the 
radical change in pH toward the alkaline 
side with subsequent precipitation as men- 
tioned by Greengard. It was also found 
that at least two different brands of sherry 
wine possessed surprisingly small amounts 
of tannin and might l)e used direct!}' in 
lirciiiiriug the elixir. 

Preparation of Samples 
Sample A. 

This was a control sample of detannated 
s'erry wine (labelled 20% by volume of al- 
cohol). It was detannated with casein 
freshly prepared a« follows: skimmed milk 
was heated to 4f)°C, coagulated with hydro- 
chloric acid and thoroughly agitated. The 
casein was removed from the liquid, washed 
thoroughly and dried. The fats were then 
removed from the casein with petroleum 
ether and dried. 


The Carolina Journal, of Pharmacy 

Sample B. 

The N.F. elixir -without the vitamin, 
sodium bromide or barbiturate. 

Sample C. 

The elixir prepared by the proposed N.F. 

Sample D. 

The product without vitamin but with 
1 dram of sodium bromide per fluid ounce. 

Sample E. 

As in D, but with 1% dram of sodium 
bromide per fluid ounce. 

Sample F. 

The proposed elixir with sodium bromide 
(1 dram per fluid ounce). 

Sample G. 

The proposed N.F. elixir with 1% dram 
of sodium bromide per fluid ounce. 

Sample H. 

An aqueous solution of sodium bromide 
(1 dram per fluid ounce). 

Sample I. 

An aqueous solution containing 1^/^ dram 
of sodium bromide per fluid ounce. 

Sample J. 

The proposed elixir with phenobarbital 
(24 gr. per fluid ounce or 3 gr. per fluid 
dram). In order to dissolve this amount 
of the hypnotic it was necessary to add 
25 cc. of 95% alcohol and then make up 
to 240 cc. 

Sample K. 

The proposed elixir containing, in addi- 
tion, sodium phenobarbital, 24 gr. per fluid 
ounce of the finished product. Alcohol was 
added until the final percentage of the 
elixir was about 27%. 

As reported by Greengard, thiamine may 
readily be decomposed into thiochrome at 
various certain hydrogen-ion concentrations. 
A series of these determinations were made 
at intervals covering about two months on 
each sample, to ascertain the stability of the 
elixir itself and in the combinations men- 
tioned above. These determinations were 
made with the Coleman Electrometer using 
a glass electrode. Also, any other changes 
such as precipitations were watched for. 

The following table records the results 
of these observations.

Sees After Seventeen Years 

Through the efforts of the Roanoke 
Rapids Lions Club of which Pharmacist 
Octavus Griffin is president. Miss Rachel 
Britten of that city is able to see after 
seventeen years of darkness. 

The Lions Club, whose major objective 
is blind prevention work, took up Miss 
Britton's case in February, 1940, sending 
her to Richmond to specialists there for 
treatments and operations. Soon after the 
work was started, Octavus Griffin became 
chairman of the Blind Prevention Com- 
mittee and arranged for the club to pur- 
chase the girl a pair of glasses. Since that 
time her vision has improved rapidly. 

Miss Britton and her father attended a 
recent meeting of the club in order to meet 
the members who had made it possible for 
her to receive her sight.

what J. W. Hope, Hillsville (Va.) drug-

he built out of bottles. More than 10,000 
bottles of varying sizes and colors are con-

the bottles for the walls which range from 
12 ounces to one gallon. 

Two boys spent three months washing the 
bottles before the building was started, 
using 105,000 gallons of water in the proc- 
ess. They were washed in Mr. Hope's 
private swimming pool, which he refilled 
three times with 35,000 gallons to the fill-

that Mr. Hancock has returned to his office 
and is actively handling his Avork once

From the results in this table it seems 
safe to assume that the addition of sodium 
bromide to the elixir does not cause any 
change in the vitamin since the slight 
changes in pH are toAvard the acid side 
rather than the alkaline side, AA^hich tends 
to promote decomposition of the thiamine 
into thiocrome. 

Apparently, the prescribing of phenobar- 
bital in this elixir does not constitute ra- 
tional therapy since the pH of the elixir is 
increased with a separation of the hypnotic 
as well as a possi))le decomposition of the 

The question arises concerning the practi- 
cability of preparing this elixir by the 
pharmacist in competition Avitli trade prod- 
ucts noAv flooding the market at a profit 
as Avell as a saving to the patient. An 
examination of Table II shows some inter- 
esting figures. 

Table II shows variation in unit strengths 
of tlie elixirs on the market AA'ith correspond- 
ing variations in prices. The prices listed 
Avere obtained from the Red Book and Blue 
Book and as a result are subject to market 

The proposed N.F. elixir contains 1000 
units per fluid ounce and can be made at 
an estimated cost of $3.06 per gallon for 
ingredients. This is calculated for thia- 
mine hydrochloride purchased only in one 
gram lots at $4.25. This price has been 
considerably reduced in recent months. The 
sherry wine was estimated at a retail price 
of $1.80 per gallon. 

On the basis of these figures it can readi- 
ly be seen that this elixir may be easily 
made and dispensed at a profit and at a 
price considerably lower than if a trade 
product Avas dispensed and should be called 
to the attention of the physician.

1. Sodium bromide in combination with 
the proposed elixir apparently has no ill 
■effect on its stability-. 

2. Combinations with phenobarbital and 
its soluble form are not stable because of 
tendency for the hj-pnotic to crystallize or 
cause precipitates with a possible decompo- 
sition of the vitamin because of pH changes. 

3. Elixir of thiamine hydrochloride may 
be easily prepared at a profit by the phar- 
macist and at a saving to the patient when 
•considered with those sold on the market.

Earle Driggers, age 40, committed suicide 
by shooting himself at his home in Winston- 
Salem on Friday, May 17. Ill health and 
overwork were said to have caused Mr. 
Driggers to take his life. 

Mr. Driggers was born December 20, 
1900, and had lived in Winston-Salem the 
greater part of his life. For several years 
lie operated a drug store in Pilot Mountain 
but returned to Winston-Salem five years 
ago to open Driggers Drug Store on the

Boulevard which he was operating at the 
time of his death. 

He was a Life Member of the N. C. P. 
A., the Knights of Pythias, the D. O. K. 
K., the Masonic Order and the George W. 
Lee Memorial Presbyterian Church.

died in a Hickory hospital on June 15 where 
he had been taken to be under the care of 
his son, Doctor Robert T. Hambriek. 

Mr. Hambriek, who six years ago retired 
from the drug firm of Hambriek, Austin and 
Thomas, of which he was senior jjartner and 
founder, had been in declining health for 
the past several months, but his condition 
did not become serious until about ten days 
ago. Immediate cause of death was a heart 

Mr. Hambriek was born October 20, 1858, 
at Leasburg where he was for 10 years a 
druggist before he moved his business to 
Roxboro about 1891. Drug Topics, com- 
menting on his retirement six years ago, 
said : "Mr. Hambriek has built up a clientele 
that has beaten a path to his door through 
three and sometimes four generations." 

He was a member of the Edgar Long 
Memorial Methodist Church of Roxboro and 
was for many years an active member of 
the board of stewards. His wife, the former 
Miss Mary Hester, died 21 years ago. Sur- 
viving children are Doctor R. T. Hambriek 

of Hickory, J. J. Hambriek of Roxboro and 
Mrs. J. H. Bass of Lewisburg, Va. 


Mr. and Mrs. Edgar W. Dunham of Dur- 
ham announce the marriage of their 
daughter, Elinor Trexler, to Mr. D. L. 
Boone, Jr., on June 25 at the Duke Uni- 
versity Chapel, Durham. The bridegroom 
is the son of Pharmacist D. L. Boone, Sr., 
prominent Durham druggist, and has been 
associated with the Peabody Drug Company 
for several years. 

Following a wedding trip the young 
couple will make their home in Durham. 

Mr. Edwin Rudolph Fuller, a member of 
the 1941 graduating class of the State Uni- 
versity School of Pharmacy, and Miss 
Elaine Beulah Weldon, were married on 
Sunday, June 29, in the New Bethel Bap- 
tist Church, Henderson. 

After a honeymoon trip through western 
North Carolina, the couple will make their 
home in this State where Mr. Fuller expects 
to accept a position in a drug store.

W. J. SMITH, Managing Editor 

Entered as second-class matter July 5, 1922, at the post office at Ohapel Hill, North Carolina 

under the Act of March 3, 1879 

Annual Subscription, $1.00 Single Numbers, 15 Cents 

Vol. XXII AUGUST, 1941 No. 8 

Restricted Drugs 

Following publication of the article, Warning — Sale of Drugs, in the July issue of 
this publication, a deluge of anticipated letters descended upon Attorney Bowman re- 
questing further information. Although similar information to Attorney Bowman's 
article has been appearing in trade journals ever since the enactment of the Federal 
Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, this, apparently, was the first time the legislation com- 
manded much interest from the readers of the Journal. 

For some time the writer has followed food and drug regulations as issued from Wash- 
ington with the intention of passing such information along to the pharmacists of this 
State. However, he has refrained from doing so in the belief that, since many of the 
provisions of the Act are yet to be clarified, it would be best to wait. 

In this State there is apparently a great deal of confusion in the minds of many 
pharmacists as to whether they are bound by the provisions of tlie law in respect to the 
sale of barbiturates. The State Act permits the sale of twelve therapeutic doses of any 
barbiturate with the sole exception of Barbituric Acid which, for all practical puri)oses, 
may be disregarded. On the other hand, Federal regulations classify barbiturates as 
"dangerous drugs" and, as such, sliould he sold only on prescription. 

The Federal authorities believe tliey liave the power under the Act to control the 
distribution of foods, drugs and cosmetics until they reach the ultimate consumer. If 
their contention is correct, then the Food and Drug Administration has control over the 
bulk of merchandise now being sold in the drug stores of this and every other state. In 
the opinion of some legal authorities the Federal law ceases to ai)ply wlien a product has 
come to rest in a state; that the Food and Drug Administration in Washington does not 
have the power to limit any drug to a physician's ])rescrii)tion. Obviously, then, this 
question of jurisdiction must be settled by the courts before c()mi)lete compliance with 
the Act will become a reality. Until the courts do decide this question, the Drug Admin- 
istration will assume they do have ultimate control over a drug and will act accordingly. 

The writer has good reason to believe Federal inspectors are currently checking the 
drug stores of this State to ascertain to what extent, if any, the so-called "dangerous 
drugs" are being sold over the counter. Ai)i)arent!y, then, the question of wlielher the 
government has power to regulate the sale of drugs until they reach the ultim.ite <'on- 
sumer, Avill be settled by tlie courts in this State within the immediate future. 

For the present it is my personal and considered opinion that the wise thing to do is 
to comply with the Federal regulations of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Since there 
is the ever-pre-sent possibility of customer lial)ility suits from the sale of any of the 
drugs classified as dangerous, it is highly recommended that you guard against selling 
such drugs across the counter. W. J. Smith.

William Henry Blauvelt 

Shown filling one of the more than 
10,000 prescriptions filled since the first of 
the year is pharmacist William Henry 
Blauvelt of Adams-Blauvelt, Inc., of Ashe- 

The store, established in 1929 by Mr. 
Blauvelt and Mr. Adams, enjoys an enviable 
reputation among the physicians and citi- 
zens of Asheville and surrounding towns. 
Since the store was established 12 years 
ago, 121,000 prescriptions have been filled 
which, in itself, speaks for the progressive- 
ness of the owners. 

Mr. Blauvelt was born in New York on 
December 14, 1871. He obtained his train- 
ing under "one of the best of the old time 
pharmacists; one who took a personal in- 
terest in you and was able to impress his 
ideals on pupils. ' ' 

When asked if he had ever held an hon- 
orary or elective office, he stated, "Being a 
Eepublican never held any. ' ' His hobby is 
books and, if we are not mistaken, work, 
because we always find him on the job 
when we go to Asheville. 

Officers-Elect Announced by 
Board of Tellers 

The Board of Tellers of the N. C. 
P. A. met in Durham on July 15 to 
count the ballots sent in by the members. 
The Board, composed of C. T. Council, 
Durham, C. J. James, Hillsboro and 
Phil. D. Gattis, Raleigh, announced the 
election of the following candidates for 
office during the year 1942- '43 : 

President, Paul Bissette, Wilson 

First Vice-President, R. P. Lyon, 

Second Vice-President, T. G. Crutch- 
field, Greensboro 

Third Vice-President, E. C. Daniel, 

Member Executive Committee, Ralph 
Rogers, Durham 

Installation of the new officers will 
take place at the 1942 meeting of the 
Association. The time and place of this 
meeting will be set by the Executive 
Committee at a later date. 


Scheduled for early appearance in various 
trade publications is a series of advertise- 
ments calling attention to the fact that 
the word ' ' Vaseline ' ' is used exclusively to 
distinguish the products of Chesebrough 
Manufacturing Company from those of 
other manufacturers. 

' ' Like all pioneers, the makers of Vaseline 
Petroleum Jelly suffer from imitators and 
imitations. No one, however, has the right 
to use the trade mark VASELINE for goods 
which are not of our manufacture. When 
your customers ask for petroleum jelly un- 
der the trade mark VASELINE, they indi- 
cate petroleum jelly made by the Chesebrough 
Manufacturing Company, Consolidated. To 
supply this demand with a product from any 
other source, we feel, is unfair to the cus- 
tomer as well as to ourselves. ' '

Pharmacy — In Greenfield Village 

It is a far cry from the old "Apothecary 
Shop," as preserved in Greenfield Village, to 
the modern store of today, but pharmacists 
who visit Detroit with the American Phar- 
maceutical Association, August 17th to 
23rd, will have an opportunity to view and 
study this 150-year old store, along with 
two others contained in Greenfield Village 
and Edison Museum. 

The "Apothecary Shop" occupies one end 
of a one-story frame building in the village. 
The other end is the old post office — this 
being the original set-up of the building. 
The simple and homemade furniture in this 
shop dates back to 1803, and, with the 
building, was moved here from Phoenixville, 

The drug equipment is not the original 
of the shop, but is a collection of antiques 
in harmony with the age of the store. Here 
may be seen wooden balances, wooden 
mortars and pestles, decorative porcelain 
ointment jars, small hand mills, and other 
equipment of the past. 

On the shelves are bottles containing 
drugs, liquors, tonics, elixirs and nostrums. 
Back of the wood-burning stove is a ease 
of drawers filled with herbs. On top of the 
case is a jar for leeches, and tall bottles 
of colored water that symbolize the apoth- 
ecary's art. 

On the left is a counter with a small 
display case of perfumes at one end, and 
a screen, back of which the druggist did 
his compounding while keeping his eye on 
customers through the familiar glass peep- 

Old prescription books and files from 
Detroit stores of the past and dating back 
to the "Gay QO's" are an interesting study 
in earlier prescription dispensing. 

In the General Store, which dates back to 
1854, and which was moved to the village 
from Waterford, Michigan, will be found 
a smaller drug unit. Although the drug 
corner contains a few crude drugs, the chief 
stock was patent medicines such as a 
country store would then have carried. 

A study of these will prove quite in- 
teresting, but they are beyond the memory 
of most of us. For instance, does anj'one 

remember "Brown's Witch-Watch"? It ap- 
parently had manj' uses in its day, and the 
front label gives directions for both in- 
ternal and external use; yet, the back 
label reads, "Caution — do not allow to come 
in contact with cotton clothing." What a 
sturdy race our ancestors must have been, 
and what stomachs they must have had! 

The third drug unit is located in the 
Edison Museum. This display is within the 
memory of many. It is a reproduction of a 
typical model drug store of the "Eighties," 
and is complete in detail and arrangement. 

On one side appear the old familiar shelf 
bottles, while sick-room supplies and other 
drug sundries balance the other, with a 
prescription counter in the rear center. The 
colored show globes in the window on either 
side of the entrance are typical of a drug 
store of that date. 

Pharmacists and their friends who attend 
this convention will enjoy this trip to 
Greenfield Village and Edison Museum. 
There is nothing else like it in America. 

A. Ph. A. Delegates 

President Ralph Rogers of the Associa- 
tion recently appointed Doctor Henry M. 
Burlage of Chapel Hill as voting delegate 
to the annual meeting of the American 
Pharmaceutical Association in Detroit, 
August 17 to 23. 

The following associate delegates were ap- 
pointed at the same time: C. C. Fordham, 
Jr., Greensboro; I. T. Reamer, Durham; 
Kelly Bennett, Bryson City; Clyde Eu- 
banks, Chajjcl Hill ; Paul Bissette, Wilson ; 
C. R. Whitehead, Ramseur; J. C. Hood, 
Kinston and Dcwitt C. Swaringen, China 

The Michigan Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion will hold their annual convention con- 
currently with the A. Ph. A. this year. 

A young Iiopoful wrote his first novel and 
submitted it to a great jmblishing house. 
He called it "Wliy Am I Living?" In a 
few days he received this message from the 

' ' Under separate cover I am returning 
your novel 'Why Am I Living?' The answer 
to that is simple. Because you didn't bring 
it in personally."

Changes in Sales Tax Law 

Sales tax reports that are due to be made 
in the month of July covering sales in the 
month of June, 1941, will be made under 
the old Sales Tax Act. 

Reports for the month of July and sub- 
sequent months will be made under the 
amended act effective July 1, 1941. The 
regulations hereinafter set out are effective 
from and after that date. 

1. Major Chiange — The major change in 
the Sales Tax Law to become effective as 
of July 1, 1941, is the amendment extending 
the exemptions to sales by retail merchants 
from ten (10) specifically named and defined 
conditionally exempt articles of food; 
namely, flour, meal, meat, lard, milk, mo- 
lasses, salt, sugar, coffee, bread and rolls to 
complete exemption for sales by retail 
merchants of food and food products for 
human consumption in the home. 

As defined in the law, "food and food 
products for human consumption" shall be 
given its usual and ordinary meaning. It 
shall not include, however, malt or vinous 
beverages, soft or carbonated drinks, sodas, 
or beverages such as are ordinarily sold or 
dispensed at stores, stands or soda foimtains 
or in connection therewith, candies or con- 
fectionaries, medicines, tonics, etc., sold as 
dietary supplements; nor does "food and 
food products for human consumption" in- 
clude prepared meals or foods sold or served 
on or off the premises by restaurants, cafes, 
cafeterias, hotel dining rooms, drug stores, 
or other places where prepared meals or 
foods are sold or served. These will be 
taxable at the same rate and in the same 
manner as in the past. 

The items mentioned in the preceding 
paragraph are items that might be construed 
as food for human consumption, but which 
are specifically excluded in the act from 
the exemptions. The principal difficulty in 
construing the exemptions relates to the 
word "confectioneries." A dictionary defini- 
tion of this term would include some im- 
portant items of food for human consump- 
tion. The two provisions of the act — one 
exempting food products "for human con- 
sumption," and the provision that leaves as 
taxable "foods served on the premises by 
restaurants, cafes, cafeterias, hotel dining 

rooms, drug stores or other places where 
prepared foods are sold or served," indicates 
a clear purpose to exempt food for human 
consumption in the home, and in this view 
the interpretation is adopted by the Depart- 
ment that such articles of food as ice cream, 
cakes, pies and pastries as are delivered 
to the home of the purchaser, or delivered to 
the purchaser in packages for home consump- 
tion, will be treated as exempt from the 
sales tax. Whenever such articles are served 
for consumption at the place of sale, they 
are taxable. 

There are many articles frequently sold 
in food and grocery stores which will con- 
tinue to be subject to the retail sales tax. 
The following lists are not intended to be 
exclusive of other articles that may be tax- 
able or exempt, but are set out as illus- 
trative and as information to merchants: 



Root beer 

Root beer extracts 
Bottled drinks 
Candied fruits 
Coated nuts 
Crystallized fruits 
Chewing gum

Paper products: 

wax paper 

paper towels 
and napkins 

toilet tissue 

cup and plates

* There is no change in the taxable status of 
animal foods. They continue to be taxable when 
the purchaser is buying for his own use as 
distinguished from purchases made in volume for 
commercial purposes, that is to say, when dairy 
and poultry products are being produced for 
commercial purposes as distinguishrd from family 
use, they are exempt.

Records and Reports. — Relative to the 
type of records which will be required to 
be kept in claiming exemption for sales of 
exempt food and food products and report- 

ing taxable sales, any type of accounting 
will be permitted which will reveal a true 
and accurate record for sales of both ex- 
empt and taxable merchandise. In all in- 
stances a gross sales record will be required. 
A grocery will perhaps find it more con- 
venient to keep a separate record of sales of 
taxable merchandise, which may be arrived 
at from purchase invoices, plus a percentage 
of mark-up from cost to selling price. The 
figure arrived at in this manner for an en- 
tire month's business, taken from the gross 
sales for the entire month, will reveal the 
gross sales of nontaxable or exempt mer- 
chandise, which when taken from the gross 
sales for the entire month will revert back 
to the amount of taxable sales. 

2. Minor Changes. — (a) The definition 
for the word "sale" or "selling" has been 
extended to include gross receipts from any 
bailment, loan, lease, rental, or license to 
use or consume tangible personal property. 
Heretofore the word "sale" or "selling" has 
been contingent upon the fact that there 
was a transfer of ownership or title to 
tangible personal property. 

Under the new definition gross receipts 
from lease or rental of tangible personal 
property such as specially patented equip- 
ment, including bookkeeping and accounting 
machines, typewriters, road grading ma- 
chinery and equipment and all other tangible 
personal proitertj- where title or ownership 
is retained are taxable in the same manner 
as sales of tangible personal property where 
ownership or title passes to the purchaser. 

(b) Exem])tion is provided for sales of 
all equipment, furniture and furnishings 
sold to trustees of churches for use in cliureh 
and Sunday school buildings. 

(c) In the al)sence of fraud the Depart- 
ment of Revenue is limited to a statutory 
period for audit of three years wbere re- 
ports have been filed. Heretofore no 
statutory limit has been in the Sales Tax 
Law; however, the Department has followed 
the general practice of not more than three 
years for audit.

Customer Relations as Applied to the Retail Drug 


By Rease Inge, Southern Division. Sales Manager 
E. B. Squibb & Sons 

You have an opportunity to add a $3,000 
volume to your store during the coming 
year. According to a recent forecast, this 
is what the Federal rearmament program 
will mean to the average drug store in the 
United States. 

In addition to this, North Carolina will 
benefit by the location of army camps, by 
increased payrolls from industry and by 
an increased return from the sale of farm 

On top of all this, drug store business 
in the State of North Carolina shows an 
improvement over the same period last 
year. Naturally, this increase in business 
is going to stores where the strongest bid 
is made for it. 

Now — Favorable customer relations are 
going to do more to influence this extra 
volume of business than any other one 
thing you can do. 

As you know, in the past many new 
stores have succeeded because of their 
ability to move into a market and domi- 
nate that market on purely a cut-price 

With Fair Trade in effect, business in 
the future will not be done on a price basis 
but on a favorable customer relations basis. 

No doubt many of you own or operate 
stores where already you are doing all the 
business that you can take care of and it 
might seem unwise to you to give any con- 
sideration to a plan by which to increase 
your volume. At the same time, let me 
remind you that you are building a founda- 
tion for future business, and if this founda- 
tion isn't built on a solid basis with your 
customers, you cannot expect to continue to 
hold your position of leadership. For ex- 
ample, certain stores make a close survey 
before they decide definitely on a location, 
and I am told an important factor in their 
decision is the type of competition that 
exists in that town. 

* Presented at the 1941 Convention of the 

Think of yourself as a customer. "Why 
do you return to a particular store to buy? 
Is it because of a certain employee 's 
friendly or courteous ma7iner, or because of 
the helpful information given, or is it be- 
cause of the quality merchandise sold? Most 
likely it is not because of any one of these 
points but because of a combination of the 

Do you pass more than one filling station 
after you definitely have made up your 
mind to buy gasoline? 

If you should ask your wife why she 
favors a particular department store she 
would probably give one of the above rea- 
sons or perhaps all of them. 

If these factors are so important to you 
and to me in determining the store we 
Avill spend our money in, aren't they just 
as important to your customers? Consider 
them one at a time. 


Training of drug store personnel pays a 
greater return than any other single factor. 
During the day many customers drop into 
your store to buy a small item that could 
be purchased at any number of different 
places, but they prefer to do business with 
you because of your personnel. 

Those of you who are store owners bene- 
fit by the constructive training that has 
been given your employees, because of in- 
creased sales and improved customer rela- 

Those of you who are employees benefit 
by being better trained and you are pre- 
pared to earn a better salary. There is 
one other point I wish to impress upon 
you. Regardless of the job you might like 
to hold, your present record is the most im- 
portant single factor in securing another 
position, or in gaining for yourself a bet- 
ter job in the store in which you now work. 

All of us know of some person who has 
progressed with his company as a result of 
outstanding work, I have in mind a man 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


who was recently made a personnel manager 
and assistant to the executive office of a 
fifteen-store chain because of an outstand- 
ing job he had done in his small store as 

Let me give you an example of what 
trained personnel can mean to a store. I 
know of a good medium-sized town where 
two drug stores are located. They happen 
to be two doors apart. In one of these 
stores there is no Vitamin business, for the 
manager insists that Vitamins will not sell. 
As you know, the pessimist is rarely dis- 
appointed. The other store has one of the 
finest volumes on Vitamin products of 
which I have ever known. This man has 
his personnel trained in the sale of Vitamin 
products, and in training his personnel he 
has pointed out the importance of the em- 
ployee in having customers return to that 
store for Vitamin products. I do not mean 
to imply that you should spend your time 
counter prescribing. But you should have 
a complete knowledge of Vitamin products 
so that you may be able to discuss profes- 
sional products with the physician and over 
the counter items with the layman. 

If information is going to be given to 
customers, it must be given in a pleasant 
manner or it is better to say nothing about 
the merchandise that you sell. It costs 
money to bring people into your store, and 
your advertising dollar is worse than spent 
if the prospective customer is chased right 
out again by a "take it or leave it" atti- 

Now I do not mean to imply that you 
should go to additional expense in order 
to render service to customers. I believe 
a customer can spend a nickel in a drug 
store and get more service than in any 
other place in the world. My honest opin- 
ion is that the customer gets too much 
service, such as having merchandise deliv- 
ered, charged, exchanged, et cetera. I do 
feel, however, that many times they are 
not rendered the service in the way of in- 
formation on products which would be 
helpful to them and would also increase 
your volume of business. 

You will be interested to know that re- 
cently a survey with customers was made 
in one of the larger cities. Of all the 

people interviewed 77 per cent said they 
were not given sufficient information from 
sales people in drug stores. There are 
many times when information you have on 
a i)roduct you sell seems elementary to you 
and you are likely to feel that a customer 
may feel that way too and would not be 
interested in knowing all the details. This, 
however, is not true, as is shown by the 

Be sure your story is interesting enough 
to cause your customer to stop and listen, 
and also show him the courtesy of listening 
to what he has to say. 

Here is another example of unusual serv- 
ice. There is a store in one of the southern 
states that uses this plan to sell Vitamin 
products: When Mrs. Jones comes in for 
a bottle of Cod Liver Oil the druggist en- 
deavors to find out how many people there 
are in her family who are taking Cod Liver 
Oil, and as soon as Mrs. Jones leaves the 
store he fills out a card for her, showing 
the size, the date, the brand and the num- 
ber of people taking Cod Liver Oil. He 
marks on the card the date on which he is 
to call his customer for future orders. This 
card is filed away according to the date 
of the call. Three or four days before the 
customer should need more Cod Laver Oil 
the druggist calls the customer and asks if 
their supply of Cod Liver Oil should be re- 

I know of no service that will build cus- 
tomer good will for drug stores on a better 
foundation than to call customers and 
show them you are interested in them, par- 
ticularly where there are children in the 
family. Not only does it mean good busi- 
ness for the future but also increased vol- 
ume at present. 

Di.splay.s have tlieir value in rendering 
service to customers and building good will, 
it is only human nature that we like to 
visit stores where we know the displays are 
of a nature that will remind us of our 
daily needs. 

Recently I was riding on the train from 
Memphis to New Orleans. In the morning 
an elderly man came in the washroom and 
as he was shaving he turned to me and 
said, ' ' You know, it is a funny thing ; I 
always run out of Shaving Cream at the 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

most inopportune times." I said, "That is 
a funny thing, for I spend a good part of 
my life telling druggists that they should 
keep on display merchandise of the nature 
customers like to buy. ' ' 

How many times on Sunday afternoon 
has your wife asked you to drive down by 
dej^artment store windows? The window 
display department of this type of store 
is one of the most important departments 
in the store. Believe me, department stores 
do build a tremendous amount of good will 
with their windows. 

You, in your stores, have a greater va- 
riety of merchandise that can be put in 
windows to create more interest among cus- 
tomers. The seasonable merchandise you 
have to sell, your prescription room and 
detail information given on fast-moving 
items are all of interest to your customer. 

Let me tell you how a clothing store 
builds good will. While walking down the 
street with a friend who had no intention 
of buying a suit, he suggested that we go 
into a clothing store. He wears a size 41 
long, and if any of you gentlemen happen 
to wear that size you know it is very rarely 
carried by clothing stores. Relying upon 
this as an excuse for not buying a suit he 
asked for a size 41 long and much to his 
surprise was shown a wide assortment in 
his size. In the discussion that followed 
he asked the store owner why he carried 
that particular size and he was told that it 
was an odd size and everybody recognized 
it as such, but that in his community he 
had practically all the business available 
on that size and by carrying this odd size 
he was able to establish his store as the 
most complete clothing store in that city, 
although they do not carry the largest 
stock. Therefore, I think that is a fine ex- 
ample of building better customer relations 
by having a complete stock of merchandise. 

You will be interested to know that ac- 
cording to recent surveys one of the great- 
est problems with the retail drug store is 
' ' out of stock. ' ' Let us dwell on that for 
a moment and find out just what happens 
to a customer who comes into your store 
and asks for a particular size of a given 
item and is told ' ' it is not in stock. ' ' 

28 per cent take another size. 

12 per cent take another brand. 

33 per cent go elsewhere. 

27 per cent do not buy. 

Customer good will not only means the 
return of that particular customer, but it 
also means he will influence his friends to 
visit your store. I am convinced that this 
is the most important service any customer 
can render your store. 

Quality Merchandise : 

With an increased earning capacity 
comes an increase in the demand for better 
quality merchandise. During the past few 
years many peojjle have used products of 
an inferior nature not because they pre- 
ferred them, but because of financial diffi- 
culties which made it necessary for them 
to economize on drug store products. 

It is well for you, as sales people, to re- 
member that many times people will spend 
more money than you think they will. Just 
because you know a particular man or 
woman cannot afford a given item does not 
mean they are not going to buy it. You 
and I both know that money is rarely spent 
only for items that we can afford. For in- 
stance, occasionally you will sell a $10.00 
hair brush, if this quality of brush is shown 
whenever customers display an interest in 
hair brushes. You will, however, never sell 
even a $2.50 brush if you only show brushes 
of $1.00 or $1.50 quality. True enough, 
many people will want to pay only $1.00 
for a brush, but there are some $10.00 
brushes sold. 

Consider for a moment how you feel 
when you walk into a clothing store and 
ask for a suit of clothes. Do you have 
the same feeling for a business firm when 
the sales person immediately offers you a 
$19.00 suit as you would have if he had 
shown you a $40.00 or $50.00 suit"? 

Definitely, being shown the better quality 
merchandise, the sales person has compli- 
mented the customer. The only man who 
is going to be offended by the clothing 
store sales person offering him a $75.00 
suit is the man who happens to have on a 
suit that cost him $100. 

A most important thing about the mer- 
chandise you have to sell is that customers

More Pharmacists 

H. C. McAllister, Chapel Hill 

In recent months it has appeared that there is a shortage of employable licensed 
pharmacists. Every few' days the writer receives letters requesting "a good licensed 
man." The most frequent requests are for "recent graduates." This would indicate that 
our four-year graduates are in demand, a fact which is borne out by actual conditions. 
All of the graduates eligible for registration were placed before they became registered, 
many having a choice of eight to ten opportunities from which to choose and with salaries 
considerably above those available to one beginning in other fields. 

These men are launching on a career in a profession with a historical background of 
more than 4,000 years, yet it is just beginning to bud from many sides with new and 
exciting opportunities in research, hospital pharmacy, manufacturing, governmental work 
(Public Health Ser\dce, Veterans Administration, Food and Drug Administration, Bureau 
of Narcotics, Army, Navy, Alcohol Administration), industrial laboratories, wholesale 
houses, cosmetic industry, biological work and, most of all, a new and revitalized EETAIL 

The day of the druggist who advised young people not to study Pharnmcy is past and 
he is in a frame of mind to pass out of the picture himself if he only knew it. The 
times have proved that he was a false prophet. It is hoped that no one in Retail Phar- 
macy (or any other branch) today will be guilty of this error. On the other hand let 
us all be a self-appointed committee of one to interest some young person in studying Phar- 
macy. After all, the responsibility of replacing our own ranks is ours. In each community 
there is some outstanding high-school graduate who intends to go to college but seems 
to find all the desirable professions filled to overflowing. Perhaps he has not investigated 
Pharmacy due to the long hours a drug store stays open or for some other reason. We 
should find these men and explain to them the numerous opportunities available in Pliar- 
masy. Point out the advantages which offset the obvious disadvantages as seen from 
the public's side. 

There is a little more than six weeks until a new class begins. Between now and 
that time, make it a point to talk with at least one or more prospective students about 
Pharmacy. Further information can be secured from the oifice of the Dean of the 
School of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill, or any other school that may be desired. Do not miss 
this opportunity to help curtail what might develop into a serious shortage of employable 

Putnam Dyes Deserve Your Support 

Within recent years over three-fourths of the dye business has shifted to five-and- 
dime stores by reason of the fact that such stores featured the dime package. To protect 
their business, which is done almost exclusively through retail drug stores, Putnam Dyes 
(Monroe Chemical Co.) inaugurated a ten cent price plan to bring this business back to 
drug stores. Tlie plan deserves your support. 

The following information, as contained in a bulletin mailed to every member of the 
California Pharmaceutial Association, will be of interest to you: " Pntnam Dyes are 
not getting the break they deserve under the new 10 cent price plan. Many dealers ap- 
pear dissatisfied with the reduction in retail price when a calm analysis of the situation 
clearly shows that Putnam had no choice unless they were to see their jiroducts dis- 
appear from the market. In the face of the tremendous inroads by the five-and-dime 
stores a price of 13 cents did not produce any business. True there is another dye in 
your store that sells for 13 cents; 2 for 25 cents — but the volume is negligible due to 
the fact that this same company features their dye in a diitic j)a('kag(' in the syndicate 
stores and there is where the volume goes." 

"Putnam is not sold to the syndicate stores. It is a drug slore item ami at thi' new 
price of 10 cents, it siiould bring the volume l)ack to the drug store. Kverytliing is in 
its favor. You have a package marked 1") cents that contains 1 M.* times the quantity in the 
10 cent packages sold in syndicate stores and you sell it for 10 cents and you make a 
real profit. Of course it is necessary to buy the drop .shipment to do this, but the in- 
vestment is small and the wholesalers will exchange any colors between drop shi{)ments. 
You can increase your turnover and profit and give support to a firm that maintains a 
drug store policy. ' ' 

To insure balanced stocks at all times the company oifers to exchange, without red 
tape, return stickers, etc., any colors and to prepay .same to your store. Furthermore, 
if at any time a customer is dissatisfied with the results produced by Putnam Dyes, she 
may have the garment dyed by Putnam chemists without charge. Cooperate with those

List of Prescription Drugs 

In the July issue of the Journal, there 
was carried a list of basic drugs that may 
be sold only pursuant to prescriptions. 
Since the publication thereof a large num- 
ber of our members have asked that we 
prepare a list of the derivatives of all 
such drugs together with the proprietary 
preparations which contain, as active in- 
gredients, any quantity of the basic drugs 

This list has been prepared and will be 
found below, and also copy of a Trade 
Correspondence of the Food and Drug 
Administration in order that you may know 
the reasons why these drugs were placed on 
the prescription list. Close study should 
be made of this correspondence since the 
accompanying list is no doubt incomplete 
in some particulars, as it is well nigh im- 
possible to name all of the locally dis- 
tributed preparations. 

Federal Security Agency — Food Drug 
Administration Information Con- 
cerning Drugs that should be sold 
only to or upon the Prescription of 
Physicians, Dentists, or Veterina- 

The Administration has received nu- 
merous requests from drug manufacturers, 
retail and wholesale drug associations, and 
others, for a list of those drug products 
which it considers dangerous when sold 
otherwise than on the prescription of a 
])hysician, dentist, or veterinarian licensed 
Ijy law to administer drugs. 

In answer to such requests, the Admin- 
istration has pointed out that the Food, 
Drug, and Cosmetic Act places upon the 
manufacturer and the distributor the re- 
sponsibility for properly safeguarding the 
marketing of drugs which may be dangerous 
to the purchaser if distributed without 
restriction. Obviously, it is impossible to 


list all drugs which may be dangerous since 
not only the compositions but also the 
directions for use and the conditions in 
wliich their use is recommended may have 
a very definite bearing on the question of 
safety or danger. As examples of drugs 
which are considered dangerous when distri- 
buted for use otherwise than on prescrip- 
tion, the following have been mentioned: 
Aconite, aminopyrine, barbiturates, ben- 
zedrine sulfate (for internal use), cantha- 
rides (for internal use), chrysarobin or goa 
power, chrysophanic acid, einchophen, 
neocinchophen, and other einchophen deri- 
vatives, colchicine, colchieum, emetine, 
phosphides, phosphorus, radium, sulfanil- 
amide, sulfapyridine sulfathiazole, tansy, 
tansy oil, thioeyanates, thyroid; the 
anthelmintic drugs: carbon tetrachloride, 
tetraehlorethylene, male fern (aspidium), 
santonin, wormseed oil (chenopodium oil), 

It is our opinion that preparations con- 
taining bromides should not be sold without 
proscrii)ti()n if the dosage provided involves 
the comsumption of more than 30 grains 
per day or more than 15 grains during any 
.■^-hour period. 

The same is true of acetanilid, in the 
case of medicines that provide a total daily 
intake of more than 5 grains or more than 
2^/2 grains during any 3-hour period. 

For bromide-acetanilid combinations, we 
have suggested that preparations for lay 
use should not provide more than a total 
daily dose of 1.5 grains of sodium bromide 
and 5 grains of acetanilid, or more than 
IVj grains of sodium l)romide and 2V2 
grains of acetanilid during any 3-hour 
period. Comparable amounts of other 
bromide preparations should, of course, be 
subjected to the same restrictions. 

There is ample scientific evidence to sup- 
port the view that preparations pro- 
viding a daily dose of more than 15 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

grains of acetophenetidin or more than 
15 grains of antipyrine are dangerous with- 
in the meaning of section 502 (j) when dis- 
tributed for indiscriminate lay use. In- 
vestigations which are currently in progress 
strongly suggest the probability that some- 
what smaller daily doses of these drugs 
may likewise be dangerous when consumed 
indiscriminately. After public notice, our 
regulatory program will, of course, include 
actions based on sales of acetophenetidin 
and antipyrine under circumstances pro- 
viding for a somewhat smaller daily dose 
if scientific opinion becomes available to 
establish the illegality of such sales. 

In our judgment, epinephrine in solution 
1% or stronger cannot safely be indis- 
criminately used, and the same is true of 
ipecac in daily dosage greater than 10 
grains, as well as of strychnine in a daily 
dose greater than 1-20 grain. 

We have also expressed the opinion that 
products containing therapeutically effec- 
tive proportions of digitalis, squill, stro- 
phanthus, or other pharmacologically related 
drugs may not be safe for indiscriminate 

It has been our experience that manu- 
facturers of such drugs as have been men- 
tioned have taken advantage of the regula- 
tion permitting omission of directions for 
use and substitution of the so-called "pre- 
scription legend." Where the legend "Cau- 
tion: To be used only by or on the 
prescription of a Physician (Dentist, or 
Veterinarian)" appears upon the package 
in lieu of directions for use, it is the obli- 
gation of the retailer to observe the in- 
junction that the article be dispensed only 
upon prescription. 

The fact that the Federal law is ap- 
plicable to the distribution by retailers of 
drugs which have been in interstate com-

Merchandising or Pharmacy or Both' 

By J. Floyd Goodrich, Sales Manager 
B.C. Remedy Company 

Present-day drug stores cannot be oper- 
ated in the same manner they were 20 years 
ago and make a profit. Some of you will 
say, oh, yes they can. It may be a fact 
that some are making money; however, the 
majority of the drug stores in North Caro- 
lina that are still operating in the old way 
just manage to struggle along and afford 
only a mere existence. 

What stores are selling merchandise and 
making money? The chain stores, you will 
say, and perhaps that is true. However, 
there are many independent stores making 
money. How? By doing a real job of 
merchandising while their competitors com- 
plain. We are all prone to make excuses 
when we fail. We can't ever get any^vhere 
by making excuses and offering alibies. We 
must face facts and facts alone. The man 
who is offering excuses is in the same posi- 
tion as a man who falls in the river and 
instead of fighting and swimming upstream 
just gives up and dro^\nis. That is exactly 
what some people are doing today, floating 
down instead of fighting. 

I was talking to a manager of a store 
last week and asked him if the Fair Trade 
Laws had affected his business. He an- 
swered by stating his business had increased 
substantially since the enactment of Fair 
Trade legislation. "Before Fair Trade we 
made our volume by price cutting; we now 
maintain this volume by utilization of 
modern merchandising ideas." 

Have you made more money since Fair 
Trade went into effect? Have you trained 
your store personnel to merchandise? You 
may say that you employ two or three 
people and cannot take time to train them. 
I will tell you this: One of the most profit- 
able uses you can put your time to is in 
training your clerks to do a real job of 

At this point I want to quote from a 
talk made by Dan Rennick of Drug Topics 
and Drug Trade Netos before the National 

* Presented at the 1941 Convention of the 

Wholesale Druggists Association in Chi- 
cago: "Competition is not stifled and 
never will be, either by fair trade laws or 
anything else. To compete, however, drug- 
gists must work as hard as they ever did — 
not with cut price signs this time, not with 
below-cost sales, but with brains and knowl- 
edge, with modern methods and machinery 
and, above all, with the merchandise people 
want. Because druggists no longer can use 
predatory cut prices as lures to traffic — 
because they now must also compete with 
aggressive operators in other lines of trade 
to get back this business, druggists now 
want to use every device, every method, 
every merchandising procedure which these 
fellows have been using against them. I 
say this is the opportunity of the century 
because we all know that if every drug 
store in America were to do a high-pow- 
ered selling job every wholesaler, in turn, 
would sell more goods — and so would every 
manufacturer. ' ' 

You would be surprised at the Avay some 
clerks and drug store ov^^lers talk and act 
to customers. Recently I was in a store 
and a woman came in with a prescription 
for a glandular product. The druggist told 
her he had never heard of it. However, he 
called another druggist in town and asked 
him about it. The other druggist (I later 
found out) informed him over the telephone 
tliat he knew of such a preparation and 
that it was being prescribed rather exten- 
sively; that he should keep himself posted 
on the newer prescription specialties by 
reading the literature mailed him by phar- 
maceutical houses. Inasmuch as the drug- 
gist had told the woman he had never heard 
of the drug but later returned with the 
information that he could supply it, his; 
abilities as a pharmacist ^vere open to ques- 
tion in the mind of the patient. Do you 
think this customer will have confidence in 
the druggist and return with prcseriptiona 
in the future? My personal opinion is that 
she will not. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Another time, I was in a small chain 
store where a young man, formerly em- 
ployed in an independent store, was work- 
ing. I listened to this boy's sales talk to 
a customer and was surprised at his ability 
to talk and sell merchandise. His sales 
ability, I would say, was 100 per cent better 
in the chain store than it had been in the 
independent store. Why? The chain store 
manager had trained him to sell, whereas 
formerly he had been a drug store employee 
and nothing more. 

I was in another store in which the sales 
force was selling toothbrushes. I stayed 
close to a woman clerk and listened to her 
sales talk. During the 30 minutes I lis- 
tened to her she sold 10 toothbrushes to 
customers who had no idea of buying tooth- 
brushes when they entered the store. She 
did not ask the customer if they needed a 
toothbrush, but handled her sales talk in 
this way : ' ' We have a special on tooth- 
brushes, guaranteed to be a year's supply, 
for 43 cents. ' ' With the customer 's inter- 
est aroused, she continued, ' ' Here they are, 
two brushes for 43 cents; nice handles, good 
brushes and guaranteed for a year. ' ' The 
sales lady had a sales talk with an idea; 
not just, "How about a toothbrush." I 
asked the manager about the brushes and 
he told me he had trained only four sales 
people out of his entire staff to sell tooth- 
brushes and that these four clerks had sold 
800 toothbrushes that week. Does it pay to 
merchandise ? 

I visited another store on a busy after- 
noon. The druggist in charge of the pre- 
scription department was in the front of the 

store. A customer came in and asked for 
an item. The druggist, not being familiar 
with the location of the item, had to ask 
another employee where it was. After find- 
ing it he had to ask another clerk the price. 
All this did, not tend to create a favorable 
impression in the mind of the customer. 
Doubtless the customer felt the pharmacist 
did not know his business. The owner of 
this store waited on a negro and while wrap- 
ping up the package, said, ' ' Well John, 
there won 't be anything else, will there 1 ' ' 
If the negro had wanted anything else he 
would probably have said no because the 
owner had already put a no in his mouth. 

One drug store proprietor recently told 
me that he could not train his clerks to 
merchandise because he had not been trained 
himself. The answer to this problem has 
already been undertaken by several phar- 
maceutical associations in the form of 
' ' Merchandising Clinics, ' ' etc. The fact 
that a number of tliese clinics have al- 
ready been held in North Carolina shows 
the need for such training in this State. 

In a recent talk, Joe Donlan of the 
Trade Extension Division of American 
Weekly, showed how impulse buying ac- 
counts for 33% of the sales in chain drug 
stores and only 8% in independent stores. 
Does this suggest to you the results which 
may be obtained by having your employees 
trained in present-day merchandising? 

In conclusion, let me leave this question 
with you: Should the art of merchandising 
be taught in the pharmacy schools of our 
various states?

Lewis M. Lamm 

Lewis M. Lamm, popular druggist of 
Mount Airy, recently received widespread 
recognition of his abilities, not only as a 
pharmacist but as a golfer as well, through 
the medium of the Winston-Salem Sentinel. 
The Forsyth publication, under the heading 
"Personalities of the Northwest," had this 
to say about Mr. Lamm : "One of the most 
enthusiastic golfers in Mount Airy is Lewis 
M. Lamm, well-known druggist, who has 
won more than his share of golfing honors 
during the past 1.5 years. A charter mem- 
ber of the Mount Airy Country Club, he has 
won an impressive array of trophies and 
titles. Three times he has won the Mount 
Airy Country Club championship, the last 
in 1939. He won the "President's Cup" 
title of the club one year and has served as 
president of the club several times. He has 
three times been individual champion of the 
Southwest Virginia Golf Association. 

However, golf is not the only sporting 
interest of this Granite City druggist, for 
he likes a good baseball game and the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina football squad 
has no more loyal fan. Lamm, who was 
born at Lucama in Eastern North Carolina 
on December 4, 1900, received his early 
education at Lucama High School, later 
studj'ing pharmacy at the University of 
North Carolina for two years between 1920 
and 1923. He worked one year in Mount 
Airj- between his two years at Carolina, 
where he received his pharmacy degree in 
1923. He passed the state board that year 
and then returned to Mount Airy, one year 
later becoming a partner in the Turnmyre 
and Lamm Drug Company. He took over 
the store in his own name late in 1932 and 
lias operated it as Lamm Drug Company for 
the past nine years. 

He was married in 1927 to Miss Gertrude 
DeLay, of Rome, Ga., and they have two 
sons, 11-year-old Jimmie and 3-year-old 
Billy. He is a member of the Granite Ma- 
sonic Lodge. He has served one two-year 
term as a member of the board of com- 

Correct Label 

At the recent American Medical Asso- 
ciation meeting Dr. Merrill Moore of Boston 
recommended that alcoholic beverages be 
put under the control of the Federal Drug 
Commission and suggested the following as 
a correct label to be applied to the liquor 
moderately and not on successive days. Eat 
well while drinking and, if necessary, com- 
]ilement food by vitamin tablets while drink- 
ing. WARNING: May be habit forming; 
not for use by children. If this beverage is 
indulged in immoderately it may cause in- 
to.xication (drunkenness), later neuralgia 
and paralysis, and serious mental derange- 
ment, such as delirium tremens and other 
curable and incurable mental diseases, as 
well as kidney and liver damage. ' ' — N. W.

Goats Milk 

In a recent communication to the Editor 
of this publication, P. J. Suttlemyre of 
Hickory had this to say about the ef- 
fectiveness of goats milk: "I have been 
selling some goats milk and a good friend 
of mine asked me if it was good for stomach 
trouble. I told him that it is said goats 
milk vs^ill heal ulcers of the stomach, 
especially when thei goat has been on a tin 
can diet and is saturated with soldering 
fluid. It is my belief, however, that the 
goat should have a newspaper diet along 
with sardine cans to supi^ly a full alphabet 
of vitamins from A to Z." 

Certified Quality Drug Stores 

Fifteen independent drug stores in Ashe- 
ville and nearby towais have mutually 
agreed to co-operate in the advertising and 
merchandising of drug products of proven 
quality. The group, to be known as CER-

advertising to appear weekly in an Ashe- 
ville paper. Only Fair Trade merchandise 
will be featured. 

The fifteen store members recently elected 
Moss Salley, B. L. Pinner and G. W. Mat- 
thews as an advertising committee to select 
the merchandise to be featured each week. 
H. E. Phillips, acting as secretary of the 
group, has prepared some special display 
material to be used by each individual 
store member.

position with Burwell and Dunn Company, 
Charlotte. For the past 21 years, Mr. 
Seagle had been continuously in the employ 
of Burwell & Dunn. 

He is survived by his wife, the former 
Miss Lillian Stalings of Danville, Virginia. 

Price Cutting and Gross Profit 

Most retailers detest price cutting on 
principle but feel compelled to do so to 
meet competition. Here is what they fre- 
quently overlook. Based upon a twenty-five 
per cent gross profit on selling price, a two 
per cent cut requires an 8.7 per cent in- 
crease in sales to make the same gross 
profit ! 

A 3% cut requires a 13.6% increase in 

A 5% cut requires a 25% increase in 

A 714% cut requires a 40.9% increase in 

A 15% cut refpiires a 150% increase in 

A 20% cut requires a 400% increase in 

In other words, if you think you can do 
four times the business by cutting prices 
20% go ahead and do it, but if sales don't 

skyrocket you will bo left holding the bag, 
losing money instead of making it. A 
glance at these figures should discourage 
price cutting, when the actual increase in 
sales required to maintain the desired gross 
profit is noted. The Pennsylvania Phar-

tute has been made if you show them an 
unknown product or a lower-price product

Obviously, it is impossible for a retail 
drug store to carry every item of every 
manufacture. However, if Zinc Oxide 
Ointment is wanted and a particular brand 
is specified which you happen not to have 
in stock at the time and a well-known 
brand is shown, there is not the same feel- 
ing on the part of the customer that an 
attempt has been made to substitute. They 
know you cannot carry everything of every 
manufacturer's make. However, they do 
expect you, as a pharmacist and as a man 
trained in buying qu-ality merchandise, to 
be in position to select merchandise that 
will meet the highest standards. They have 
a right to expect this of your store. When 
your customers take that position your 
store will continue to be the leader in your 

Your business is a most important one. 
Tlie liealth of your community depends 
upon it. You have every right to be ]iroud

In my oi)inion the drug stores in North 
Carolina are far above the average and 
rank very high in the drug world of today. 
If you want to hold your customers' good 
will I rain j/our personnel, render intelligent

dise obtainable. Not only will such a plan 
assure you of doing more business immedi-

A public office holder died and at his 
funeral an office seeker approached the Gov- 
ernor of the state and asked if he could 
have the dead man's place. 

"I have no objection," said the Governor, 
"if the undertaker is willing." 

"Did you get that man's number?" a 
traffic officer asked another policeman. 

"No, he was going too fast."

A life insurance agent approached Mose 
Taylor, a very much married negro. 

"Better let me write you a policy, Mose," 
he suggested. 

"No, suh," said Mose emphatically. 
"Ah ain't none too safe at home as it is." 

"I want to be procrastinated at the nex' 
corner," the colored woman said to the 
street ear conductor. 

"You want to be what?" he asked.

Then there was the traveler who asked 
a native of a remote region in the Ozarks 
if he didn't have trouble getting the neces- 
sities of life in that inaccessible spot. 

"Yes, we do," said the mountaineer," and 
half the time we do get it, it ain't fit

A ragged tramp entered a Bowery saloon 
which was infested with flies. If he could 
have a drink, he said, he would kill every 
fly in the place. The bartender gladly ac- 
cepted his proposition and gave him a

it, took off his coat, rolled up his sleeves 
and said, "All right. Boss, I'm ready. 
Send 'em out one by one."

Sales Tax Exemptions 

A preliminary check by Association offi- 
cials reveals that only a small percentage 
of pharmacists took advantage of the addi- 
tional exemptions allowed under the 
Amended Sales Tax Act effective July 1, 
1941. If you have not already done so, 
read tlie article Changes in Sales Tax Law 
as published in the July issue of the Caro- 
lina Journal of Pharmacy, pages 144-145. 
If you have misplaced your copy, you may 
obtain another one without cost by writing 
W. J. Smith, Drawer 151, Chapel Hill. 

Ice Cream, when sold for home consump- 
tion, is exempt from the tax as are baby 
foods, dried milk products, flavoring ex- 
tracts, etc. In reporting taxable sales, any 
type of accounting will be permitted which 
will reveal a true and accurate record of 
sales. In all instances a gross sales record 
will be required. 

Your daily exemption from the amended 
Act may not be impressive, nor may you 
consider it worth your time and trouble to 
keep the necessary record, but over a period 
of twelve months the saving will fully jus- 
tify your efforts. 

New Requirements for Commissions 
in the Army 

According to information received from 
Congressman Carl T. Durham, member of 
the House Military Affairs Committee, 
pharmacists applying for commissions in 
the Army must under the new requirements, 
serve six months in the Army, attend Officers 

Candidate School in Carlisly, Pa., for three 
months and then agree to serve a year after 

The following comments concerning the 
changed requirements for commissions ap- 
peared, in part, in a recent issue of the 
Journal of the A. Ph. A., Practical Phar- 
macy Edition : ' ' With the rare exception of 
the individual who has been graduated by 
West Point, Annapolis or one of the other 
schools mentioned (C. M. T. C. Camps, R. 
O. T. C, Air Corps Training Center, etc.) 
in addition to having been graduated from 
an accredited college of pharmacy, pharma- 
cists applying for commissions will have to 
attend an Officer Candidate School for three 
months to qualify. Before being admitted 
to an Officer Candidate Schol the pharma- 
cist must have completed six months of 
military service and he must agree in writ- 
ing to accept twelve months' extended active 
duty if commissioned. Hence, a pharma- 
cist-selectee who applies for a commission 
will be in service for a minimum of twenty- 
one months, and the chances are that his 
service will be somewhat longer tlinn that 
period. ' ' 

' ' Under former regulations, pharmacists 
wlio have been granted a degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Pharmacy from a school ap- 
proved by tlie American Council on Phar- 
maceutical Education and who had at least 
one year's experience in the practice of 
tlieir profession were considered eligible for

Cancer Cure 

(Exact reproduction, with name and address omitted, of a letter recently received 
by one of the State Departments in Baleigh). 

Dear Sir : 

You will find in the accompanying pkge. to this letter, a, medicine which is a sure cure 
for cancer, being sent for test, and trial to prove its self. I am the manufactor of 
the same, and have known this secret over fifty years; but its use has only been in a 
private form, and does not reach all who need it. This medicine is also fine! for sores, 
and especially old sores. Scrofulas and such, sores that appear on the surface of the 
body which are relative to Cancers. 

This medicine contains no poison whatever; and is not dangerous to handle; can even 
be tasted Avith safety, and is clean ! 

For eating cancer treatment. Plaster the medicine over the mouth of the cancer well; 
then cover that with a thin scrap of clean white old cloth, cut just a little larger' than 
the mouth of the sore, pressed down so it will stick well; then bind up and let remain 
(24) hours; then remove clean off the sore and dress again the same way. This medicine 
kills the Cancer, and draws it out, I mean, it draws out the roots ; and the roots are 
small like Spider-webs; so in removing the plaster carefully lift it from one side, 
peeping under it with care to see if straws like Spider-webs extend from the mouth of 
the Cancer to the plaster. And as long as the straws lasts, continue the plasters ; but 
when all straws like webs disappear, then clean off the sore, dress it without the medicine 
to heal up. And when you are convinced with this medicine recommendation, then tell 
me how that I may be permitted to reach the Public with it. 
I am thanking you in advance for your reply, hopeing to hear from you soon. 


Pharmaceutical Concern to Be

We're Not Too Busy 

By Maubice LeEoy Cable 
Kenilworth Drug Store, Asheville 

The professional pharmacy need not be 
classified as an individualist in the field of 
retail drugdoni. On the contrary, every 
retail drug store can and should be a pro- 
fessional pharmacy in every respect, from 
the suburban drug store serving a neigh- 
borhood to the highly departmentalized up- 
town store. 

To gain this recognition with the medical 
profession we must not only leave an im- 
pression that we are practicing professional 
pharmacy, but also in-oduce constant, con- 
clusive evidence of such practice. 

The pharmacist, in his daily contact with 
the physician, can do an equal or better 
job detailing his prescription department 
and his ability to serve the physician than 
the commercial detail salesman who offers 
only the products of his house. The phar- 
macist can start where he leaves off. 

For very obvious reasons, the physician 
takes more interest in a pharmacy that does 
its own manufacturing of medicinal prep- 
arations as equipment will allow. The phy- 
sician does not hesitate to send an office 
order or a difficult prescription to such a 
pharmacy. The evidence he has seen and 
the assurance he has received from the 
pharmacist who detailed him has won his 
confidence and conviction that any and all 
orders will be treated ethically and no small 
technical procedure will be omitted. 

Tlie preparation of such official formulae 
as Compound Iodine Solution, Compound 
Mixture of Opium and Glycyrrhiza, Anti- 
septic Solution Alkaline, Mi.xture Rhubarb 
and Soda, Calamine Lotion and many other 
official and non-official jjrcparations can be 
made in the prescription room, incidentally, 
at 20% to 50% more profit than the price 
asked for by wholesalers and manufacturers. 

Most of us use the "too busy" slogan 
when asked why these and many other prep- 
arations are not made in the prescription 
room. The wholesale druggist and manu- 
facturer find the compounding fee lucra- 

tive enough to warrant time in manufactur- 
ing and supplying these formulae. Since 
the primary object of drug store operation 
is profit and salaries are paying for time 
and ability, this profit need not be spent in 
compounding fees for someone else. 

The physician friends of your pharmacy 
do not overlook this pharmaceutical service. 
They become conscious of the fact that 
you are practicing pharmacy in a strict 
sense, instead of considering your prescrip- 
tion room a "necessary evil" of secondary 
importance in the operation of a profitable 

There is nothing new said herein, just a 
reminder that, with organized time, we can 
do away with the ' ' too busy ' ' line and pro- 
mote a closer affinity between physician and 
pharmacist, granting that we have the time 
and want the profit.

The Guion Brothers: Clyde, Clayton and Howell 

The Journal takes pride in the accomplishments of the three brothers pictured 
beloAv: All three attended the University of North Carolina School of Pharmacy and are 
registered pharmacists; they own independent drug stores, are members of the North 
Carolina Pharmaceutical Association and, by reason of their outstanding ability and 
character, have contributed to the advancement of the profession. 

CLYDE DOYLE GUION, the oldest of the three brothers, was born 
in Unionville, N. C, on May 23, 1891. He attended Unionville High 
School and the U. N. C. School of Pharmacy following which he was 
licensed as a pharmacist in 1916. Mr. Guion's practical training 
was gained under the late J. C. Wolfe who operated the Wolfe 
Drug Company of Waxhaw for many years. On February 2, 1917, 
he established the Guion Drug Company of Cornelius and has oper- 
ated the business continuously since that time. He is a Mason, a 
member of the Methodist church, likes to hunt, and has a son, 
Rodney Lynn, age one year. Photo by Franklin Studios, Charlotte. 

CLAYTON LLOYD GUION, second oldest of the three brothers, 
was born in Unionville on August 21, 1897. After graduating from 
the local high school and working for his brother in the Cornelius 
store, he attended the Pharmacy School at Chapel Hill. After pass- 
ing the Board of Pharmacy in 1921 he was associated with the 
George C. Goodman Co. of Mooresville for a time. For the past 
several years he has managed the Bryan DTug Companj-, Inc., of 
Aberdeen, one of the most successful drug stores in Moore County. 
He is affiliated with the Masonic Lodge, likes to fish, and has two 
step children; Martha Lou, age 13, and Everett Lewis, age 10.

HOWELL NEWTON GUION, the youngest of the three brothers, 
was born in Unionville on March 25, 1900. Like his brothers, Mr. 
Guion attended LTnionville High School and the State University 
School of Pharmacy, graduating with the class of 1921. Before 
going to Chapel Hill he worked in his brother's store at Cornelius 
and the Horsley Drug Company of Bessemer City. After receiving 
his pharmacist's license he was connected with the Independence 
Drug Company of Charlotte for two years before establishing his 
own business, the Guion Drug Store, in Marshville, which he oper- 
ates at the present time. He is a member of the American Legion, 
the LT^nion County Welfare Board, Vice-President of N. C. Beagle 

the Masonic Lodge. His hobbies are fishing and raising pure bred beagles,

We Lost Three Students ! 

By H. C. CiiRiSTENSEX, Secretary 
National Association of Boards of Pharmacy 

The N. A. B. P. Annual Census of 
Pharmacy tal)ulatiou just completed shows 
8,759 students registered in 68 colleges of 
pharmacy in June 1941, as against 8,762 
students so registered at the same time last 
year — a total loss of three students. For 
the past three years, there has been a gain 
in enrollment each year over the one previ- 
ous and it is encouraging to note that there 
has been no considerable drop during the 
present emergency. Universities in the in- 
sular possessions are not included in these 

The number of seniors graduating in 1941 
was 1,624, as compared with 1,533 last year, 
an increase -which was predicted in view of 
the higher 1937 freshman enrollment. The 
dropout percentage on the basis of the 1937 
freshman count of 2,482, and a graduating 
class of 1,624 this year, was only 33%. This 
is considerably less than heretofore — last 
year the drop-out percentage was estimated 
at 46%. 

The neAv student count, which includes not 
only the freshman but also the new students 
of advanced standing that have enrolled, 
was 2,970 this year as against 3,099 last 
year, a drop of 129. The year previous 
(1939; showed a new student count of 2,920. 

Board Statistics 

The returns from all the states with the 
exception of California show 2,254 pharma- 
cists registered by examination this year 
as against 2,292 for 46 states (incom- 
plete) last year. In a few instances, this 
return covers the Board's fiscal year in- 
stead of the calendar year 1940. As the ex- 
amination registration in California usually 
runs quite high, it is probably safe to pre- 
dict that the replacement figure of 2V^% or 
2,500 new pharmacists has again been met. 

The total number of R. Ph. candidates 
taking the Board examination in these 47 

states and the District of Columbia during 
1940 was 3,450. Those receiving licenses 
totaled 2,254 making the passing percentage 
for the country as a whole of 68% as 
against 62% last year. It should be pointed 
out that this average has been dragged 
down considerably by non-graduates still 
taking examination under exemptions, etc. 
It is in no sense an index of the number of 
four-year graduates jiassing the Board. 

Thirteen states still reported assistant ex- 
aminations and had registered 445 new as- 
sistants, as against 355 last year for eleven 
states (incomplete). The total outstanding 
assistant licenses for the country as a 
whole were reported at 4,621, as against 
4,512 last year. 

These same 47 states and the District of 
Columbia reported 52,937 drug stores, and 
if we make an allowance of 3,374 stores for 
California (U. S. Census of Business) the 
total will be 56,311 for the country as a 
whole. The U. S. Census of Business figure 
for 1939 was 57,903 but that includes patent 
medicine outlets and does not list licensed 
Board outlets such as hospitals, dispen- 
saries, department stores, etc. This accounts 
for the variation in the different counts, 
which depend, of course, on the definition of 
a drug store. 

These same 47 states and the District of 
Columbia report 101,324 registered pharma- 
cists on the roster and in active practice 
within the state. Estimating 6,000 pharm- 
acists for California, the national total 
would be brought to approximately 107,000. 
The ]930 U. S. Census showed 104,000 and 
.'iltliough the 1940 census figure is not yet 
available, the census officials report that so 
far the figure is quite close to that of 1930. 
With 56,311 drug stores, this means that we 
can still count on 1.8 R. Ph. per store — a 
figure which has l>een constant for many

Plans for N. A. R. D, Convention 
Are Maturing 

Both in the Chicago headquarters of The 
National Association of Retail Druggists 
and in Cleveland, where the members of the 
Convention Committee are hard at work, 
plans for the forty-third annual N. A. R. 
D. Convention, which will be held in Cleve- 
land, October 6 to 10, are being pressed 
vigorously toward completion. Because 
Cleveland lies on the imaginary boundary 
between the East and the Middle West and 
thus in the center of the most populous part 
of the United States, it may reasonably be 
expected that the attendance will break all 
records, declared Executive Secretary John 
W. Dargavel in a recent statement. 

' ' The new problems created by the war 
emergency, by recent legislation, and by 
pending and expected tax measures, so seri- 
ously affect the welfare of the independent 
retail druggists of the nation that the need 
for a united front is greater than ever 
before," he said. "So the forthcoming 
convention will be no routine gathering of 
drugdom, but a solemn conference in which 
druggists from every section will meet to 
make far-reaching decisions. 

' ' There will be entertainment, to be sure, 
to occupy all the time of the ladies and to 
furnish relaxation for the delegates after 
their deliberations; and the quality and va- 
riety of the entertainment features Avill 
equal or surpass those presented in any 
former convention ; but the emphasis is de- 
cidedly on the serious business of determin- 
ing what course retail druggists should fol- 
low amid all the changes which will con- 
front them during the coming year." 

The roster of speakers has not been com- 
pleted, by any means. The list of speak- 
ing talent available is being scanned care- 
fully to assure that those selected are men 
who have messages that will give the dele- 
gates something to carry home with them. 
It is known that one of the speakers will 
be A. G. Murray, chief of the division of 
the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Administra- 

tion Avhich has charge of enforcement in 
the drug field, who is perhaps more compe- 
tent than any other man to answer many 
complex and puzzling questions with which 
the retail druggist is confronted. He can 
speak with authority on the intent and effect 
of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic law and 
tlie regulations promulgated thereunder. 

Another authority to be heard is H. J. 
Anslinger, head of the Narcotics Division 
of the Treasury Department, who will point 
out what the druggist will have to do to 
fit his prescription practice to the require- 
ments of the Narcotics law and present 
regulations thereunder. 

Special emphasis will be laid this year on 
messages from the druggists themselves, and 
a heavy draft has been made on talent from 
within the N. A. R. D. Dr. George L. 
Secord, former N. A. R. D. president, and 
Edward Spease, Director of Professional Re- 
lations, Avill headline a program devoted to 
physician-pharmacist relations; and Keith 
Keller, an N. A. R. D. member who is 
nationally recognized as an authority on 
drug store merchandising will preside over 
a session featuring such speakers as Paige 
L 'Hommedieu, of Johnson & Johnson ; 
Walter Quinlan, of the Pro-phy-lac-tie 
Brush Company; and Zenn Kaufman, author 
of some of the best textbooks on merchan- 
dising, including Showmanship in Business. 

Retail Drug Institutes 

After completing a special course in drug 
store merchandising at the University of 
Tennessee, W. Lee Moose of Mount Pleasant 
is organizing a third series of Retail Drug 
Institutes in Charlotte, Concord, Gastonia 
and Shelby. 

The first program of the third series will 
be held in Shelby on Monday niglit, Sep- 
tember 1, followed on successive nights in 
Gastonia, Concord and Charlotte. A new 
topic, Changes in the Sales Tax Act, has 
been added to the sixteen subjects covered 
in the first two series of Institutes held in 
Greensboro, Durham, Raleigh and adjacent

ing the retail drug industry today is not 
on tlie dollar side of the ledger — important 
as that is in providing shoes for little 
Willie. The problem of the hour is how to 
safeguard the integrity of American phar- 
macy and preserve its individuality and in- 
itiative in a nation already badly infected 
with the virus of institutionalism and regi- 
mentation. Pharmacy, as a profession, 
might profitably p)onder the old admonition : 
Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for 
the old paths, where is the good way, and 
walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your 
souls. ' ' 

M. C. Miles, Miles Pharmacy, Henderson: 
' ' For a decade or more, certainly at the 
present time, the most serious problem fac- 
ing the retail drxig trade is price cutting; 
a practice which to my mind paralyzes co- 
oj)eration in our profession. 

' * Take for example the drug stores in 
North Carolina doing an annual business of 
.$15,000 to $25,000 which are in the ma- 
jority. These stores are doing a smaller 
volume of business due primarily to the 
larger drug and grocery chains selling 
standard merchandise at a much lower price 
than it is nationally advertised to retail 
for. I realize this practice exists every- 
where and perhaps will continue until drug 
store merchandise is sold only in drug stores 
under the direct supervision of a registered 

"I want to take this opportunity to com- 
mend those men who were responsible for 
the enactment of Fair Trade legislation 
which has relieved the situation to some 
extent, but to my mind has not yet finished 
the job." 

J. Louis Cobb, Aaron's Pharmacy, Inc., 
Mount Olive: "Pharmacy is that Art which 
deals with medicinal substance. In all Art 

the secret of Beauty lias as its key Balance. 
This is true in music, painting, sculpture 
and the art of letters ; it is equally true in 
pharmacy ! All too much ' ' Bally-hoo ' ' has 
been tom-tommed to sell us on the idea that 
we are cold, calculating and, I might add, 
soulless scientists. Let 's forget science and 
think of ourselves as an association or guild 
of artists. 

"Balance — let's key our industry to 

' ' Tomorrow 's purchases should be in cor- 
rect proportion (balance) to today's total 
gross sales. By disregarding this ' ' key ' ' 
we buy duds ofttimes which, like termites, 
eat the rounds from our ladder of success. 

' ' Let 's have artistic balance in all 
things: Overhead, cooperative displays, pub- 
lic relations, advertising , our promotion 
work and in our relations to our 'Fellows' 
ill our Art." 

0. R. Black, Central Drug Store, Besse- 
mer City: "Unprofessional ethics practiced 
by a sufficient number of pharmacists to 
cause a most deplorable condition in our 
profession is the most serious problem fac- 
ing the retail drug trade at the present 
time. Present-day pharmacists receive little 
compensation for their professional efforts 
or for the long drudgery hours which they 
maintain. For example, in Gastonia a grad- 
uate in pharmacy has a sign on his window 
which reads: 'Cut Rate On All Prescrip- 
tions, ' and he is working fourteen hours 
a day. 

"Lack of organization and understanding 
by the members of our profession, in my 
opinion, constitutes a grave problem." 

Narcotic Robbery in Swannanoa 

Members of the Buncombe County sheriff's 
department nabbed Jack Perkins as he was 
leaving Ward's Drug .Store of Swannanoa 
on the morning of August 3. Officers said 
Perkins had his shirt full of various nar- 
cotic drugs and was wearing socks on his 
hands to keep from leaving telltale finger- 
prints in the store. 

Perkins was sentenced to 10 years in the 
state penitentiary on August 18.

Background for Effective Interprofessional 


By J. W. Snowden, Manager 

Prescription Marketing Service, Pictorial 

Paper Package Corporation 

' ' How can I get doctors to want to co- 
operate with me ? ' ' 

Here is the main problem in the doctor- 
pharmacist relationsliip and one which must 
be solved before any success in their re- 
lationship may be expected. You can't make 
love to a girl when she's leaning away from 
you and you can 't get a doctor 's coopera- 
tion if he isn't in complete sympathy with 
what you are trying to do. The establish- 
ment of an understanding acquaintance be- 
tween you and the doctors in your locality 
is absolutely essential for intelligent co- 
operation, which means a type of coopera- 
tion that will enable you to make greater 
profits through being relieved of the neces- 
sity of stocking too many duplications of 
items and through encouraging the greater 
use of official medicines. 

Let us be very thoughtful in approach- 
ing this matter of getting the doctor to want 
to cooperate with you. Let us try first to 
understand the doctor, to determine what 
manner of person he is, what makes him 

The doctor; when you study him, is just 
like all the rest of us humans. He wants to 
be a success and because of this wants a 
reputation for successful treatment. There- 
fore, he is anxious for information but he 
may not be anxious enough to want to go 
to much trouble to get it. He wants to 
get it the easiest way. This is what makes 
him so susceptible to the detail man. This is 
why he will welcome you when you can 
bring him something useful if he has con- 
fidence in you. Considering the host of new 
developments in the drug field, the doctor 
needs an associate but you can bet your 
bottom dollar on the fact that he will not 
accept an associate in whom he does not 
have implicit confidence. 

* Presented at the 1941 Convention of the 
N. C. P. A. 

Tlierefore, the first principle in huilding 
a bacl'ground for effective interprofessional 
relations or getting doctors to want to co- 
operate with you comes down to a matter 
of creating his confidence in you. 

Building doctor's confidence in you seems 
to depend upon two things: first, the appar- 
ent ability of the pharmacist to meet his 
obligations as a scientifically trained per- J 
son who is not only a pharmacy graduate, \ 

but a man who is interested in Pharmacy 
and who keeps up with developments ; sec- 
ond, making it evident through your atti- 
tude and through your store that you think 
Pharmacy is important. It is this last point 
with which I want to treat in some detail. 
Many pharmacists have ability but they fail 
to get across the idea that they think 
Pharmacy is important. And under such 
circumstances it is futile to attempt to make 
others think it is important. 

I speak with confidence on this point be- 
cause of a survey we made two years ago 
of iiharmaey success stories. The reason we 
made this survey was to try to find, if pos- 
sible, if there was a common denominator, 
a basic principle in all these success stories. 
When the results were in — results showing a 
pharmacist here increased his business no- 
tably by improving his store front; another 
there did it by improving his prescription 
department; another did it by improved 
packaging or equipment — we did see the 
basic principle and it was very simple. It 
was this: they made prescriptions look im- 
portant. For the very first time customers 
who came into these stores for cigarettes, 
toothpaste, and other drug store merchan- 
dise were impressed with the fact that their 
druggist was interested in prescriptions, 
that he was a pharmacist, and it is only 
natural that people believe that a man who 
is interested in what lie is doing will be 
more capable at it than one who treats it as 
a mere sideline. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Wlien you go out to call on the doctor, 
you are attempting to sell him something 
and cue of the basic principles in selling 
is to be believable. And you can't be be- 
lievable if what is evident to the eye con- 
tradicts everything that you say. You can 
shout until you are hoarse that there is no 
medicine like prescription medicine and no 
one can do quite as good a job of com- 
pounding as you can, but unless it is ap- 
parent in other ways that these things are 
true, few will pay you serious attention. 

Once in a while when I'm talking to 
some pharmacist about the value of good 
packaging, I '11 have some such response as, 
''All that stuff is a lot of bunk!" Sure 
it is — it 's bunk. But let us redefine this 
rather unhappy term when applied to these 
matters, and what we have is "impression 
of value." This matter of making pre- 
scriptions look important doesn't make 
prescriptions any better ; it only makes 
people thi7}l- they're better. But in that 
qualifying phrase lies the force that is 
more responsible than any other single one 
for directing the nation's feet toward its 
favorite retail counter. The Field's and 
the Tiffany's use it, this "impression of 
value ' ' or bunk, if you vnW, to get across 
the idea of supervalue. The chain stores 
use it to create the thought that their mer- 
chandise is con.sistently lower priced than 
independent competition. Wliat, when you 
get right down to it, is the highly touted 
salutary effect of the doctor's bedside man- 
ner but "impression of value," or bunk? 
It doesn 't make the doctor a better diag- 
nostician or fundamentally better in any 
sense, l)ut it does enable him to control the 
patient and to build business. It will enable 
you to do the same thing and that's some- 
thing you can't do with price appeal alone. 

Having ability and looking it is profes- 
sional follow-through and the doctor has 
every right to expect this type of co-opera- 
tive follow-through from you to help main- 
tain the patient 's confidence in the treat- 
ment the doctor has prescribed. The doctor 
thinks the prescription is important or he 
would never have wTitten it. The patient 
must assuredly think so for it is the only 
tangible evidence he has of the money he's 
paid for the doctor 's service. Now if you 

don't make it look like you think so too, 
there 's a let down. Doubt enters in and 
confidence in the entire set-up is shaken. 
Not only is this not helping the doctor, but 
this is where Pharmacy's competition en- 
ters; competition from patent medicines and 
medicine dispensed by doctors. 

Making prescriptions look important or 
professional follow-through doesn't need to 
cost a lot of money. You have to have a 
store front anyway. You have to have a 
prescription department anyway. You have 
to have equipment anyway. You have to 
have packaging anyway. When you install 
these things, if, instead of trying to get by 
with the very cheapest you can, you select 
them with an eye to which will do the most 
for you in building business, that is, which 
will make prescriptions look the most im- 
portant, you will not only be doing a good 
turn for yourself but for Pharmacy as well. 
You will, furthermore, have less trouble 
getting your price. 

Store Front: Make the store front say 
things about you that you want said. Make 
it give off the kind of impressions you 
want people to have of you. Whether you 
plan it so or not, people passing back and 
forth in front of your store are forming 
some kind of opinion of you. If you want 
to build prescription business, more im- 
portant than the matter of the front itself, 
is that you keep a professional display in 
your window, if not all the time, at least at 
regular intervals. How can people passing 
your store know you think prescriptions are 
important if you never give them any dis- 
plaj- in your window? 

Store Interior r If store display sells mer- 
chandise, it will also sell prescriptions. The 
way to display prescriptions in the store 
is, of course, to make your prescription 
laboratory dramatic, attention-compelling. 
If you are interested in building prescrip- 
tion business, there should be no fixture in 
your store which would loom up beyond the 
prescription laboratory. 

Equipment * The things you work with 
become quite commonplace to you but to 
the layman, they are quite impressive. 
Therefore, display your equipment where 
the public can see it. This is one of the 
advantages of the semi-open prescription de- 


The) Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

j^artment. A neighborhood pharmacist in 
Louisville, Kentucky, spent $27.00 opening 
up his prescription department and $7.50 
for a glass burette which he suspended above 
the prescription counter. His report to me 
was that this burette had been worth $75.00 
to him in advertising in a few short months, 
for two doctors had remarked about it and 
had become so impressed that they began 
writing prescriptions through his store. 

When I first entered this field and having 
a hunch about what was wrong, I asked a 
group of college students to whom I Avas 
lecturing on an entirely different subject 
what kind of prescription they would rather 
their doctor write, one for a medicine made 
by one of the big manufacturers (I named 
two or three who did national advertising) 
or would they rather the prescription be 
compounded at the local drug store. The 
poll was extremely unfavorable to the local 
druggist and the reason was very simple. 
Most of these students were from smaller 
towns. They had never come in contact 
with real Pharmacy. They had come in 
contact with the manufacturer's advertising 
and had a mental impression of them with 
spotless laboratories containing great bat- 
teries of scientific equipment with tech- 
nicians running around in white robes, and 
their impression of the local pharmacist in 
contrast to this was decidedly unfavorable 
to the pharmacist. 

Paclcaging : Keep up the standard of pro- 
fessional atmosphere by your prescription 
package, for here is what the patient sees 
and her friends see of you when they are 
no longer in your store. Keep up the pro- 
fessional tempo inaugurated by the doctor. 
It is a poor compliment to the doctor and 
the patient both to package the prescription 
like it was just ordinary merchandise. To 
them it is anything but ordinary merchan- 
dise. It is extraordinary merchandise. Keep 
up the patient 's confidence in the medicine 
by packaging it so that it looks extraordi- 
nary, enhance her opinion of the doctor by 
packaging that doctor 's prescription so that 
it looks like the most valuable and precious 
medicine ever designed. 

You can't say to a patient, ''This pre- 
scription is dispensed better than any other 
pharmacist in town can do it, and it's a lot 

better than that patent medicine you have 
been buying or that medicine you have 
been getting from your dispensing doctor. ' ' 
You can't say that straight out to a custo- 
mer, but you can imply' it in a manner just 
as strong as though it were put into words 
by an authoritative third person — ^by the 
manner in which it is packaged. A 90c 
prescription doesn't cost the patient just 
90e. If the doctor's charge is $2.00 it 
costs her $2.90. The customer is far better 
satisfied if it costs $2.95 for medicine that 
looks like $2.95 than if she is charged $2.90 
for medicine that looks like about 79e. 

We have a little philosophy about this 
whole subject of making prescriptions look 
important through dramatizing the store 
and package and that is this: 

What the prescription comes out of 

and what you put it into suggests what 

you put into the prescription. 

When you get right down and think about 
it, what other way is there of getting across 
the story of top quality in an item whose 
quality is not apparent on the surface? 

Good relations with the physician, there- 
fore, like charity, begins at home. First 
build a background that will make apparent 
your ability to meet your obligations as a 
scientifically trained person. This you can 
do through making prescriptions look im- 
portant. When you do this, you make what 
you say believable, establish confidence in 
the message you have to bring to the doctor. 


Another way of making doctors want to 
co-operate with you is to help them sell 
their services. Three years ago we launched 
the phase "Individualized Medicine" as a 
rallying cry to help both doctors and phar- 
macists sell their services. I may be able 
to explain better how it works by describing 
liow we came to originate it. 

Prom all the hue and cry that originated 
with pharmacists about patent medicines, 
medicines dispensed by doctors and proprie- 
tary medicines, it seemed to us that there 
was an indication that people were not sold 
on prescription medicine. This hunch proved 
to be true for we instituted a survey with 
the public which disclosed the amazing fact

Faculty of School of Pharmacy 
Off to Detroit 

Tlie entire faculty of the State University 
School of Pharmacy will be on hand when 
the opening meeting of the American Phar- 
maceutical Association gets under way in 
Detroit on August 17. 

Professor Henry M. Burlage, voting dele- 
gate to the convention from the N. C. P. A., 
and Mrs. Burlage left Chapel Hill for De- 
troit on August 12. The Burlages plan to 
spend several days with their relatives living 
in Indiana before returning to this State 
by way of Baltimore and Washington. Pro- 
fessor M. L. Jacobs left on August 13 for 
a meeting of the U. S. P. Revision Com- 
mittee which precedes the regular meeting. 
Dean J. G. Beard and Professor Ira Rose 
left Raleigh on Sunday, August 17, by 
plane for Detroit. The trip by air re- 
quires but five hours. 

Professor Edward Brecht, another mem- 
ber of the faculty, will drive down to the 
convention from Minnesota Lake, Minnesota, 
where he is spending the summer months. 

With the faculty in Detroit and Miss 
Alic* Xoble away on her vacation the writer 
and an Indian are the only persona left in 
the Pharmacy Building. Since the Indian 
has been dead more than a hundred years, 
our conversation has been somewhat limited. 

Send for this Business Yardstick 

For nine years Eli I>illy and Company 
have made known to the retail drug trade 
their willingness to evaluate the operating 
figures of retail drug stores and to supply 
a report with constructive suggestions cal- 
culated to assist retail druggists to over- 
come whatever conditions appear to be mili- 
tating against the success of their manage- 
ment. In no sense can this service be in- 
terpreted to mean that a druggist is being 
advised on how he should run his business. 
The analyses are based on comparisons of 
the operating figures of successful stores by 
size of the town or city, by zones and by 
volume of sales. The service is offered with- 
out charge or obligation of any kind and 
in strict confidence. By the end of the 

business year a wealth of data has been 
gathered together and a most interesting 
economic report is published and distributed 
witliout charge to those participating and 
to others in the drug business who are 
interested and make request. This report is 
called the Lilly Digest. It has a back- 
ground of more than 4,000 retail drug-store 
profit and loss statements. The one just 
off the press represents a detailed study 
of the operations of 605 drug stores and 366 
prescription departments in those 605 drug 
stores for the year of 1940. 

The neatly bound and printed Lilly Digest 
contains a wealth of factual figures and 
data. The trend of drug-store profits is 
shown since this Lilly Service started in 
1932. Studies and tables prove the profit- 
ability of the professional department, 
monthly fluctuations in prescriptions filled 
by geographic sections, and by size of city, 
and prices received in stores of varying 
volume. There are tables on store expenses 
according to population of the town or city 
and also by volume of sales. For the first 
time a set of goal figures — something to 
shoot at — representing the costs and ex- 
penses achieved by stores with above average 
profits appears in the Lilly Digest. Nearly 
everyone recalls the familiar question "How 
am I doing?" Any druggist has the op- 
portunity of measuring his performance 
with an accurate yardstick by spending an 
hour with this latest Lilly Digest, which is 
free for the asking. Address Eli Lilly and 
Company, Box 618, Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Parking Meters? 

Two druggists of Winston-Salem had this 
to say about the parking meter question 
which recently created quite a bit of con- 
troversy in that city: "I can't understand 
why 160 merchants have no more foresight 
than to petition against parking meters" 
said Sam Welfare. E. W. O'Hanlon, favor- 
ing installation of the meters, had this to 
say: "I haven't parked on the street ad- 
jacent to my place of business in 3 years. 
People who park on tlie streets without a 
damn thing to do should be willing to pay 
for it. ' '

What the Proposed Federal Tax Bill 
Before Congress Would Provide 

The new Federal Revenue Bill of 1941 
passed the House with but slight changes in 
the proposed Bill submitted by the Ways 
and Means Committee. It has been before 
the Senate Finance Committee for several 
days. Extended hearings have been held. 
It is thought that the bill will be reported 
out of the Senate Finance Committee by 
September 1st, and it is felt that this 
Committee will send the bill to the Senate 
in virtually the same form as it left the 
House. There is a slight probability, how- 
ever, that the soft drink tax may be elimi- 
nated. Many of the levies contained in the 
bill effect retail drug stores materially. We 
list below for your information the major 
provisions effecting retail druggists. 

I. The 10% defense tax on all present taxes im- 

posed for 5 years by section 15 of the Inter- 
nal Revenue Code, is made permanent. 

II. Income taxes generally have been drastically 

increased and many retail druggists will 
find their tax liability in this field doubled 
on their income during 1941. 


III. A new departure in income tax assessment, 
which would have required husband and wife, 
living together at any time during their joint 
taxable year, to reiwrt their income in a 
single joint return and to compute the tax 
on their aggregate income, was stricken from 
the bill before passage. In cases where wives 
have an independent income this consolida- 
tion of returns would have resulted in dras- 
tically higher taxes. 

IV. Corporate income and excess profits taxes are 

increased. Capital stock, gift and estate taxes 
are increased. 


V. Increases in existing excise taxes are: 

1. Playing cards, from lie to 13c a pack; 

2. Safety deposit boxes, from 11% to 20%; 

3. Distilled spirits, from $3 to $4 per proof 

gallon; brandy from $2.75 to $3.75 per 
proof gallon ; 

4. Imported perfumes, from $3 to $4 per 

gallon ; 

5. General increases in taxes on wines, 

liqueurs, and cordials; 

6. Tires, from 2% to 5c per pound; and tire 

tubes from 4%c to 9c per pound; 

7. PToor stock taxes, equal to the increase in 

taxes in the hands of all holders with- 
out exemption, are imposed on distilled 
spirits, wines, tires, and tubes. 

8. The tax on automobiles is increased from 

3 % % to 7% ; the rate on trucks is in- 
creased from 2 % % to 5% ; the tax on 
parts and accessories is increased from 
2%% to 5%; 

9. The tax on radios, phonographs, records, 

and musical instruments is increased 
from 51/2% to 10%; to be paid by the 
manufacturer on his selling price; 

10. The tax on refrigerators, refrigerating 

apparatus, and air conditioners, is in- 
creased from 51/^% to 10%, to be paid

Narcotic Robberies 

W. T. Atkinson, Federal narcotic agent 
stationed at Greensboro, recently reported 
that about 5,095 grains of narcotics were 
stolen in this district during June. "Addicts 
are getting desperate," he said. "They 
will use any means to get drugs. ' ' 

The Hardwicke Pharmacy of Wake Forest 
was entered on the night of July 30 and 
438 quarter grain morphine tablets stolen. 
Prior to that, on July 21, Andrews Drug 
Store of Goldsboro was robbed of 3,000 
quarter grain morphine tablets. The dope 
from the Goldsboro store, Atkinson said, 
would bring $1,500 on the bootleg mart. 

John Williams and his wife from Colum- 
bia, S. C, were arrested by Atkinson at 
Mooresville in connection with the Golds- 
boro ease. They are alleged to have worked 
the job in this fashion: They asked the 
druggist to use his telephone Avhich was 
near the narcotic cabinet. While Williams 
stayed by the phone, his wife asked for a 
cold drink at the fountain and Williams was 
able to secure the key to the narcotics cabi- 
net (hanging nearby), open it and take the 
moiphine out. 

^Ir. Atkinson requests that druggists keep 
their narcotic cabinets locked and the key in 
their care or where strangers cannot get it. 

An old mountain woman became ill and, 
for the first time in her life, called a doc- 
tor. He jtrescribed quinine in capsules. It 
was almost impossible to get her to swallow 
these strange looking objects, but, after 
much persuasion, she was induced to take 
them. A few days after she was able to sit 
up, her daughter prepared a treat for her. 
Filling the old woman 's pipe she gave it 
to her, and then picked up a live coal from 
the fireplace and started toward the bed. 

"Ma, here's a light for your pipe," she 

"Lordy, girl, git away from here," the 
mother screamed. "Take away that fire. 
I just recollected I'm all filled up with 
cartridges. ' '

(Continued from Page 174) 
that less than fifty people out of a thousand 
know why prescription medicine is to be 
preferred. You know this is true. You 
know that people in general are not actually 
sold on prescription medicine for if they 
were, they would not be so susceptible to 
patent medicine ads. They would not ac- 

cept without question ready-made medicines 
dispensed by doctors and doctors would not 
be so prone to careless prescribing habits. 

It looked to us that the first job was to 
work out a selling story for prescription 
medicine and the most superficial analysis of 
the four types of medicine — that is, patent 
medicine, medicine dispensed by doctors, 
proprietary medicines and true prescription 
medicine, discloses the point of merit which 
prescription medicine had over its three com- 
petitors. For of all these medicines, pre- 
scription medicine is the only one wliich 
ideally anyhow is not prefabricated. The 
rest of them are prefabricated, made up 
hundreds of miles away, hundreds of days 
in advance sometimes of the time they are 
to be used and without even the vaguest 
knowledge of the person on whom they are 
to be used. Prescription medicine is the 
only one of these four which does not exist, 
is not made up until after the doctor's ex- 
amination and analysis of the patient and 
can be individualized to suit the individual 
conditions as the doctor determines them. 

It was our belief, and we still believe it, 
that if this idea could be sold to the public, 
we could discourage self -medication because 
self -medication is possible only through the 
use of ready-made medicine. We would dis- 
courage doctor dispensing because doctor 
dispensing is possible mostly through the 
use of ready-made medicine. We could, 
furthermore, encourage doctors to individ- 
ualize their prescriptions to dramatize the 
superiority of medication through the doctor 
over self -medication. 

So we originated "Individualized Medi^ 
cine" and have been urging its use ever 
since through window displays, newspaper 
advertising, packaging, etc. The technique is 
quite simple. First, remind people that 
every body is a different body; second, ex- 
plain that only prescription medicine can 
accommodate these differences. 

How do doctors take to this type of pro- 
motion? Experience shows that they are en- 
thusiastic as they well should be. Aren't 
you enthusiastic about a manufacturer who 
sincerely tries to help you sell his goods? 
It is the anti-self -medication angle of this 
technique that appeals to doctors. They 
feel pretty kindly toward you for your 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


inoinotion of the idea of using prescription 
medicine as opposed to patent medicines be- 
cause the doctor is the only source of pre- 
scription medicine. 

I have always looked at the doctor-drug- 
nist relationship as exactly like the manu- 
facturer-dealer relationship. You are the 
manufacturer of custom-made medicines and 
tlie doctor is your dealer. Now you know 
that a manufacturer of toothpaste doesn't 
spend all of his money telling people what 
a wonderful man you are just because you 
handle his product, nor does he dwell at 
length upon the ancient and honorable tra- 
dition of the toothpaste business. What he 
does is to go right out and sell people on 
toothpaste and particularly his toothpaste, 
and that is exactly what you can do to get 
better results and, hence, to get doctors more 
interested in co-operating with you. 

A very important point in this technique 
is this salient fact : th^ people of this coun- 
try are more medicine-minded than they are 
doctor-minded. As vital as diagnosis is to 
the people, it is the medicine that makes 
them well that seems important. It is the 
medicine that gets the credit ; therefore, 
don't go the long way around and waste 
your substance trying to sell people on such 
vague things as Medicine or Pharmacy 
themselves. Sell medicine, a certain type 
of medicine, the medicine which is the prod- 
uct of collaboration between you and the 
physician. Sell prescription medicine. When 
you have successfully sold a person on the 
idea of using prescription medicine, you do 
the most effective thing you can do toward 
getting that person to go to a doctor who 
is the only source of prescription medicine. 
Furthermore, you lead them to expect a pre- 
scription and an individual prescription at 
that when they get to the doctor and this 
expectancy on their part is a tremendous 
influence on the doctor who is as susceptible 
to public opinion as any man on earth. 

For a very few dollars a year you can 
get special window displays that will tell 
this story in your window — probably one 
of the most effective mediums you have. 
You can tell the story in your newspaper 
advertising. You can augment this stor}' 
by telling it on your prescription packages. 
Get it across in your conversation Avith store 

customers. Remember this A'ital point — 
that the phrase ' ' Individualized Medicine ' ' 
offers the selling theme that builds a de- 
mand for the service which gives the phar- 
macist the right to consider himself a pro- 
fessional man, and that is his ability to com- 
pound medicine in small, individual units. 

Before leaving this subject, let us estab- 
lish if we are on solid ground, if there is 
actual need for local compounding service. 
In getting around the country and observing 
conditions, I have come to believe in many 
things about Pharmacy, but the most im- 
portant thing that I have come to believe 
in is Pharmacy itself. I Avill quote here a 
few excerpts from my file of opinions of 
high medical authorities. Here is what they 
have to say about the need for compound- 
ing medicine in small, individual units: 

' ' Human beings vary greatly : they eat 
different diets, they live under different 
psychological circumstances and the effects 
of various agents on their lives may differ 
greatly — it is impossible to have them all 
of the same type." 

— Phclgst. test re use of animals under 
controlled conditions — unif. diet, srndgs. 
etc — as opposed to humans in study of 
effects of chem. agts. 

* ' Everj' physician can select from them 
(USP, NF) the few formulas he may need 
that will be as elegant and pleasant as 
proprietary preparations and, moreover, will 
represent guaranteed doses of the various 
ingredients of the formulas selected. While 
the use of some of the ready made prepa- 
rations is advised, it should be understood 
that it is much better to formulate one's 
own jirescription to fit the individual case." 
— IIandlx)ok of Therapy (A.M.A.) 

" As a physician I would be quite incon- 
sistent if I did not hold the view that all 
human ailments are best treated by a com- 
petent physician who is capable of making 
a correct diagnosis and ])rescril)ing the spe- 
cific treatment not only for the disease in 
question but also for the individual patient. 
In other words, therapeutics must take into 
account both the disease in all of its mani- 
festations and the patient in all of his 
moods and idiosyncrasies. The problem is 
treatment according to specifications as con- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

trasted with treatment on the basis of gen- 
eralities. ' ' 

— From a U. S. Health Dept. member's 
speech before a group of proprietary manu- 

After having this testimony, which seems 
to me is irreproachable because of its 
sources, I firmly believe that if tlie pharma- 
cist will take his stand on these facts, indi- 
cating unquestionably the need of individu- 
ally compounded medicine, he can success- 
fully withstand undue encroachments of all 
types of prefabricated medicines because he 
will at one and the same time make ' ' Indi- 
vidualized Medicine" more acceptable to the 
public and make doctors more willing to co- 
operate with him by specifying individual- 
ized prescriptions. 

In conclusion, my opinion is that before 
any interprofessional activities are started, 
there should be established a background 
which will insure a successful acceptance of 
these activities on the part of the physi- 
cian. The establishment of a background 
consists, first, of building a store atmos- 
phere that inspires confidence and, second, 
to institute promotion that will help the 
doctors sell their services by building great- 
er appreciation for medicine that only the 
doctor can design. 

As an examjile of how effective this can 
be, let me tell you how easy it was for a 
pharmacist in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to get 
a doctor to individualize his prescriptions. 
The doctor was writing prescriptions for a 
ready-made compound containing a combina- 
tion of Theobromine and Phenobarbital. 
This druggist had recently remodelled his 
store and was running window displays fea- 
turing ' ' Individualized Medicine. ' ' He also 
had done some newspaper advertising on it 
and was using it on his cartons and in his 
prescription packages. He made up some 
capsules of the same formula, went to the 
doctor and broke the ice by telling the doc- 
tor that he noticed he was writing for quite 
a few of these tablets and thanked him for 
the business. As an added service to the 
doctor's patients, this pharmacist asked the 
doctor if he wouldn't consider using the 
same medicine with the formula written out 
on a prescription if he could save the 

patient 25%. This interested the doctor. 
Then he asked the doctor if it was possible 
that all of these patients needed exactly Y2 
grain Phenobarbital, if some of them might 
not be better suited if they had Vs grain 
or maybe less than % grain. The doctor's 
response to this indicated how far away he 
had gotten away from rational therapeutic 
practice. He said yesj that he had often 
wished that there was some way he could 
take away or add a little of this particular 
ingredient. His subsequent prescriptions 
were written out for official medicines Avith 
amounts of basic ingredients varied and 
sometimes new ingredients added. 

The point of this is, could this pharmacist 
have accomplished what he did if he had 
not by his background and promotional ac- 
tivities first commanded the doctor's respect 
and won his confidence to the point that the 
doctor was willing to listen to him? 

Contrary to what many people think, 
Pharmacy enjoys a tremendous marketing 
advantage. In the first place, the pharma- 
cist is on the home ground. In the second 
place, he has the best selling story to the 
public, the story of ' ' Individualized Medi- 
cine. ' ' He also has the best selling story to 
the doctor, the story that self -medication is 
impossible with medicine that is not created 
until after the doctor designs it. Then 
you have the doctors' own association pull- 
ing for you. On display outside this room 
are pamphlets entitled ' ' The Pharmacopoeia 
and the Physician ' ' which are taken from 
the Journal of the American, Medical Asso- 

Pharmacists must finally face the fact 
that it is no longer enough just to be ca- 
pable, no more than it is enough for a 
manufacturer just to be able to manufac- 
ture something. You've got to sell what you 
can make in order to keep your place to- 
day — and that applies to the professions too. 

Don't be dismayed by competition. When 
you analyze manufacturer competition in 
relation to any one locality, it's not so tre- 
mendous; furthermore, you have the truth 
on your side and armed with this truth, 
if you can get doctors wanting to co-operate 
with you, you can be a very Gibraltar of

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 



At 7:30 Tuesday evening, May 13, the 
62nd annual convention of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association together 
with its affiliated bodies, the Traveling 
Men 's Auxiliary and the Women 's Auxiliary, 
convened in general session in the ballroom 
of the Washington Duke Hotel in Durham, 
North Carolina. 

President Joe Hollingsworth of Mt. Airy 
called the 62nd session of the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association to order. 

President C. H. Smith of Charlotte called 
the 28th convention of the Traveling Men's 
Auxiliary to order. 

Mrs. J. K. Civil, Charlotte, President of 
the Women's Auxiliary, called that body to 
order. This was their ninth annual meeting 
since it was reorganized. 

Rev. Stanley C. Harrell, Pastor of the 
Christian Church of Durham gave the invo- 
cation after which the entire audience joined 
in singing "America." 

Mayor W. F. Carr in a witty and cordial 
address welcomed the convention guests to 

J. C. Brantley, Jr. of Raleigh, very ably 
responded to this welcome. 

D. L. Boone, Sr., on behalf of the Dur- 
ham Druggists welcomed the visitors and ex- 
pressed the hope that their visit would be 
very pleasant. 

Paul Bissette of Wilson responded to Mr. 
Boone 's greeting. 

On behalf of the Ladies' Local Com- 
mittee, Mrs. W. B. Morgan welcomed the 
ladies in a most cordial manner. 

Mrs. Lloyd Jarrett of Biltmore responded 
very graciously. 

Local Secretary I. T. Reamer made some 
announcements pertaining to the following 

Upon motion made and seconded, the joint 
session adjourned. 


After a short intermission, President Hol- 
lingsworth called the adjourned session to 

order. Upon motion of Secretary Smith, the 
roll call was dispensed with due to the fact 
that Assistant Secretary C. M. Andrews was 
taking names of those registering. 

The reading of the Minutes of j)receding 
meeting was dispensed with upon motion of 
Secretary Smith, since the proceedings of 
the last meeting were printed in the Caro- 
lina Journal ov Pharmacy. 

President Hollingsworth called the atten- 
tion of the druggists to the fact that Resolu- 
tions should be presented in writing to 
Roger McDuffy, Chairman of Committee on 

At this time. Congressman Carl Durham 
was called on to say a few words. 

A part of Mr. Durham 's informal talk 
follows : 

It is a great pleasure to be with you again 
this year and I am hoping I can stay for the 
entire convention. ... I am very proud of my 
profession as a druggist and want you to know 
that I am first a druggist. . . . 

At the present time in Washington we are 
going through what perhaps is one of the most 
serious times that have confronted our nation. 
We are confronted with the problems of a pre- 
paredness program which we are called upon to 
expedite and carry through to completion as 
quickly as possible. I served in the last war 
in a small capacity and today in the nation's 
Capitol we are having and going through with 
a program that we should have had in operation 
since 1920. I say that because of the fact that 
in 1920 after the last World War we felt like 
we would have peace in this country for a long, 
long time but today we are confronted with a 
European situation which has never faced the 
world before. Of course, at the present time, 
there is a lot of argument pro and con as to how 
we should proceed. I feel that we should take no 
chances whatsoever. I supported every measure 
for defense of this country that has been brought 
before the House of Representatives. I do not 
think that the people of America have come to 
tlie full realization of the dangers that confront 
us in Europe provided the Axis powers carry 
through the program they have in view. I do 
not say this as an alarmist. I had the privilege 
this year of representing the people in this State 
on the Military Affairs Committee. In this com- 
mittee, sessions continued from day to day. A 
lot of information has been in confidence but I 
can say we have been meeting' with the War De- 
partment every week. I can say further that 

The Caholina Journal of Pharmacy 


with respect to guns, airplanes, et<;., today this 
program is running ahead of schedule as planned 
last September. We have had a lot of criticism 
in respect to the defense program, especially the 
strikes. We have been analyzing each week how 
strikes are affecting defense plants and indus- 
tries. I think that today the situation is much 
better. Some people have felt like there should 
be legislation in respect to strikes. We here in 
the South do not hear so much as those in the 
Xorth and far West, but when you analyze it 
you will have a different picture from the news- 
paper and radio reports. I feel we are handling 
this as it should be handled — through the Media- 
tion Board. 

I am very proud to be here — proud that I am 
a druggist — proud that you people have sent me 
to Congress to represent you there. It is a pleasure 
to talk to you and to know no one will get up 
and criticize me and to know there's no one with 
a machine or pencil and paper taking down every 
word I say. 

Now this work has been very interesting to me 
and very educational and it is a great opportunity. 
I hope that I can be here with you all the week 
and if I can be of any assistance to you, please 
do not hesitate to call od me. I feel closer to the 
Iteople of N. C. than any other state in the 
United States. 

There is somewhat of a threat now to the 
M ill er-Ty dings Bill. A bill has been introduced 
to repeal it and I say to you that I think at the 
present time we have it well in hand. Mr. 
Roland Jones has been very diligent. We want 
to work on this without any publicity. The 
TXEC recommended that it be repealed. It may 
develop that we will have to have some concerted 
action and I say to you folks that if I can be of 
any assistance, I will help you in any way I can. 

Following Mr. Durham's address, Vice- 
President Ralph Eogers took the chair while 
President Hollingsworth presented his ad- 


President Hollingsworth: Mr. Chairmun, 
Fellow Members of the North Carolina Pharmaceu- 
tical Association, Ladies and Gentlemen : 

It has been customary in the j) for the 
President to deliver an address at each annual 
meeting. After reading over a few of these in 
the Proceedings Numbers of the Journal, I real- 
ized my inability to render one which would com- 
pare favorably with those of my worthy predeces- 
sors. Therefore, I started looking for an alibi, 
or some way out of my predicament. In studying 
the Constitution and By-Laws, I found a ray of 
hope and here it is: 

By-Laws, Article II — Duties of Officers 
Section I. The President shall preside at all 
meetings, etc. He shall present at each annual 
meeting a report of the operations of the Asso- 
ciation during the year and suggest such sub- 

jects for its benefit as he may deem worthy of 

* * * 

I have quoted the above By-Law to justify the 
action I am taking in presenting a report, yes, 
another one of those abominable reports, which 
some of you detest so much. Therefore, I suggest 
that you make yourselves as comfortable as pos- 
sible, and resign yourselves to your fate. How- 
ever, I have outlined the activities briefly and 
will try to make as few comments as possible. 
As I see it, the activities of the Association in- 
clude the efforts of the officers in carrying on this 
work and, therefore, I will ask your indulgence 
in making personal references. 

The Country Needs Our Help 
We are all conscious of. the seriousness of the 
times. We realize more than ever before that our 
nation is confronted with world problems that 
grow more serious each day and that each hour 
concerns us more closely as the World War battle 
front changes and as the European nations fight 
on. It is not a time for us to indulge in hys- 
teria, but to face facts calmly and helpfully. Above 
all we must prove that we are 100 per cent 
Americans and are still true to the ideals of our 
forefathers as well as to our flag, the greatest 
emblem of freedom in all the world. As we 
begin our convention then, let us not only renew 
our ])Iedges of loyalty and service to our pro- 
fession, but to our President and to our country! 

It was my privilege, as a delegate from your 
Association, to attend the meeting of the Ameri- 
can Pharmaceutical Association in Atlanta, in 
August 1939, and also, the meeting in Richmond, 
in May 1940. North Carolina was well repre- 
sented with large delegations at both meetings and 
this fact was noticed and commented on by the 
officers. I was a member of that Association for 
several years after graduation, but decided that 
it was too scientific and too far above the head 
of the average small-town druggist so I dropped 
my meniber.shii). After attending these meetings, 
I realized that my opinion was wrong, and that 
there is a definite place in the A. Ph. A. for the 
retail pharmacist. The sections on Practical 
Pharmacy and Dispensing, and on Pharmaceutical 
Economics are of particular interest to the retail 
Iiharmacist. Our own member, Mr. Kelly E. Ben- 
nett, of Bryson City, read a paper on Prescrip- 
tion Record-Keeping before the latter section, at 
the Atlanta Meeting, and it was well received. 
This paper was later published in our Carolina 
JoiRN.M, OF Pn.\iiM.\CY. The A. Ph. A. is now 
l)ublishinK a Practical Pharmacy edition of its 
Journal and this should stimulate more interest 
for the retail pharmacist. 

Mr. Charles H. Evans, a retail iiharmacist of 
Carrollton, Georgia, our neighboring state, is now 
President of the A. Ph. A. 

Dr. E. F. Kelly, a native North Carolinian, 
has been Secretary for many years, and has done 
a great deal for the cause of pharmacy. Dr. Kelly 
was my Professor of Pharmacy, and is a man 
for whom I have the greatest admiration and re-

spect. His Association deserves our active sup- 

Again, it was my privilege, as a delegate from 
your Association, to attend the United States 
Pharmacopoeial Convention in Washington, in 
May, 1940. It was a source of great satisfaction 
to see and hear the men who write our textbooks 
and who have revised our Pharmacopoeia several 
times. But the greatest satisfaction was in hav- 
ing a part in the election of one of our own 
members. Dr. Jacobs, of the University School of 
Pharmacy, as a member of the Revision Com- 

At the Charlotte Meeting, when I was installed 
as your President, it was with a deep sense of 
appreciation for the honor you had bestowed upon 
me, and a feeling of great responsibility to my 
fellow members, to carry on the excellent work 
done by my predecessors. However, there was 
also a sense of uneasiness on entering into my 
duties without the ever helpful hand of Dean 
Beard as Secretary. I had looked forward to 
serving with him with a great deal of pleasure. 
It was soon very apparent to me that some of 
this uneasiness could be dispelled as Professor 
Rose and Miss Noble carried on the work in a 
most creditable manner and were most helpful 
and cooperative. 

It is not my intention to report on the com- 
mittees which had specific duties to perform, but 
I do want to mention a few things that I con- 
sider most important. Also, I realize that most 
of the activities on which I report have been pub- 
lished in the Journal, but to refresh your mem- 
ory I will outline them briefly in the order in 
which they occurred. 

There have been six meetings of your Execu- 
tive Committee and three of them have been joint 
sessions with the Board of Pharmacy, and from 
this you will see that this body is giving us ex- 
cellent cooperation and assistance. Tlie first meet- 
ing was on June 20, in joint session with the 
Board of Pharmacy, and at this time W. J. 
Smith was elected Secretary-Treasurer of your As- 
sociation and Editor of the Carolina Journal of 
Pharmacy, also as part-time inspector for the 
Board. I consider this as one of the most im- 
portant steps this Association has ever taken, as 
I think the arrangement is working well and that 
much progress has been made. However, I sin- 
cerely hope that the Association will soon be 
strong enough to require the full time of the Sec- 

I want to take this opportunity to express to 
the members of the Board of Pharmacy, the sin- 
cere appreciation of the Association for their fine 
cooperation and assistance at a very critical time. 

One of my first duties was the appointment of 
committees, and the one hundred county legisla- 
tive chairmen. When you stop to consider that 
approximately 150 such appointments are to be 
made, it is quite an undertaking, and I sought 
advice from many sources. However, I will refer 
to this later. For those committees which would 
require frequent trips to Chapel Hill and Raleigh, 
I tried to appoint members other than those in 

the extreme eastern or western i^arts of the state. 
Judging from my own experience during the pre- 
vious two years, it is quite a hardship and very 
inconvenient at times to drive long distances to 
these meetings. 

In June, it was my pleasure to attend the Con- 
vention of the Virginia Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion in Roanoke, in company with Miss Alice 
Noble, as uninvited guests. However, we certainly 
received a very warm welcome and were treated 
royally. Secretary Winne had very kindly at- 
tended several of our meetings, and had been 
very helpful to us. Therefore our purpose in go- 
ing was to show our appreciation and to get 
ideas for our own convention, also to extend an 
invitation to the Virginia Pharmacists to attend 
this Convention. 

N. A. R. D. 

Again, as delegate from your Association, and 
as your President, it was my privilege to attend 
the Convention of the National Association of Re- 
tail Druggists in New York in September. I was 
very favorably impressed with the entire organ- 
ization, the sincerity of the officers, the ableness 
of the attorneys, and especially with the strong 
financial condition. With practically unlimited 
funds, it is no wonder that they can do such 
excellent work for the relail druggists of U. S. 
It was very evident to me that they are putting 
forth great effort in the interest of the small, 
independent retail druggist. 

The Presidents of the State Associations con- 
stitute the Advisory Committee to the President of 
the N. A. R. D., and at the Pre-Convention Meet- 
ing of this body, with the President and Executive 
Committee, your Association was given national 
recognition as having held the largest convention 
in Charlotte that had ever been held by any State 
Pharmaceutical Association in the U. S. up to 
that time, according to official records. We owe 
a debt of gratitude to Mr. John A. Goode, former 
President of the N. A. R. D. for this honor and 
recognition. Thanks again to Mr. Goode, Chair- 
man of our delegation, it was my privilege to 
serve on the Resolutions Committee. Two meet- 
ings were held and the last one was adjourned at 
five o'clock in the morning. It was very inter- 
esting and instructive to hear the discussions as 
the members were from every section of the U. S. 
We think we have some problems in North Caro- 
lina, but many states have greater ones, and I 
came to the conclusion that North Carolina was 
a much better place for the retail pharmacist than 
the majority of states. It was quite evident that 
many State Associations are now trying to attain 
objectives which our Association attained several 
years ago. One in particular is the placing of a 
Pharmacist on the State Board of Health, and 
this Association is very fortunate at the present 
time in having one of our Ex-Presidents serving 
very creditably on our State Board of Health. 

The Drug Show held in connection with the 
Convention was very interesting and many new 
ideas on display and merchandising were avail- 
able. I think our Association should give some 
consideration to the Drug Show Feature. 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


In consideration of the excellent work being 
done for the independent retail druggists by the 
N. A. R. D., our active support should be given to 
it, but I am going to be selfish and request that 
you pay your dues to the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association first, and then join or pay 
dues to the X. A. R. D. After all, as the old say- 
ing goes, "charity begins at home.'' 

Mr. Sam Watkins, another Southerner, of Dora, 
Alabama, is President at the present time. 

Pharmacy Week — -October 22 

National Pharmacy Week was widely observed 
by North Carolina Pharmacists. R'adio talks were 
given over the Durham, Hickory, and Winston- 
Salem stations. There were several appearances 
before civic and luncheon clubs, many profes- 
sional window displays, and special ads in local 
papers. An outstanding example of newspaper 
publicity was a full page in the Charlotte Ob- 
server used by the pharmacists of that city to 
carry the combined Pharmacy Week message to 
the people of that section. 

Your Secretary spoke to 600 school children in 
Durham on the history of pharmacy. A more ex- 
tensive program of this nature would give the 
public a better insight into the services rendered 
by the pharmacists of your state. 

On October 23, Secretary Smith and I visited 
the Durham Drug Club and enjoyed an' excellent 
barbecue supper. After seeing President Reamer 
and the members of his club in action, I was 
thoroughly convinced that our convention in this 
city would be one of the best, and I sincerely 
believe that you will agree with me before you 

I did a very good job of eating- barbecue and 
what goes with it, if you do not believe me. ask 
Mr. Boone, and Secretary Smith made a very 
fine talk on our objectives for the year. We made 
an agreement that I was to do the eating and he 
was to do the talking. However, it was not long 
until he started encroaching on my duties. 

On October 25, we visited the Winston-Salem 
Drug Club, and enjoyed a delicious steak dinner. 
We congratulated the members on making one of 
the most succesisful Fair Trade Drives in the 
State. I attempted to give them some observa- 
tions made at recent conventions I had attended, 
and extended them an invitation to attend the 
coming Sectional Meeting in Asheville. Secretary 
Smith again made a very fine talk on proposed 
new activities. 

Sectional Meetings 
For many years the Presidents of your Asso- 
ciation have recommended District or Sectional 
meetings and this was one of the objectives of 
this administration. We felt that it was necessary 
to start such a program where it could be spon- 
sored by a local drug club with the assistance of 
a wholesale drug jobber. When your Secretary 
discussed this matter with the A.sheville Drug 
Club, they were very enthusiastic and asked that 
a meeting, under the name of "A Merchandising 

Clinic," be held in their city on November 7. 
Therefore, on this date was held the first Sec- 
tional Meeting of the N. C. P. A. The future 
policy of this program was dependent on the suc- 
cess or failure of this meeting. Your officers felt 
that it was an absolute success, and the sincere 
thanks of our entire membership is due the Ashe- 
ville Drug Club, and especially its Secretary. Mr. 
H. E. Phillips, the Dr. T. C. Smith Co., and all 
the firms that participated. 

On the trip to Asheville I called on as many 
druggists as possible and reminded them of the 
meeting and urged them to attend. 

On December 2, the Secretary and I visited 
the Greensboro Drug Club. It was time to eat 
again and an excellent turkey dinner was served. 
We were so enthusiastic in discussing the Ashe- 
ville Meeting with them that their officers, in 
conjunction with the Justice Drug Co., requested 
that such a meeting be held in their city as soon 
in the new year as convenient. We were very 
happy indeed over this request, as we felt that 
our dreams were coming true. It was our inten- 
tion to hold this meeting in January, and if suc- 
cessful, to attempt one in Eastern Carolina in 
March, even if there was no drug club or jobber 
to sponsor it. Due to the influenza epidemic and 
other causes the Greensboro meeting was not held 
until March. As most of you know thia meeting 
was also very successful, and again we wish to 
express our thanks to the Greensboro Drug Club, 
the Justice Drug Co., and all the firms whose rep- 
resentatives had a part. 

It was evident during the open forum that 
many members entered into the discussions and 
expressed their ideas, who do not do so at our 
annual meetings. Also, we find that many mem- 
bers who cannot spend three days at the Annual 
Convention, can come to a one-day meeting in 
their section of the state. Therefore, we feel that 
we have made some progress in bringing the As- 
sociation to those members who cannot come to 
the Association. 

Mrtlidil of Atlrcrtixing Sectional Meetings 

One of the ways of advertising the Sectional 
Meeting was for the local drug club to send out 
an invitation in the form of a card signed by its 
President and Secretary about five days prior to 
the meeting, then a similar card, as a reminder, 
signed by your President and Secretary was 
mailed two days later. On my way down to 
(Jreensboro I did some missionary work for the 
meeting. I asked the first druggist I called on if 
he received a program, and this was his reply, 
"My yes I I received a program, a let- 
ter, a card every other day, I read about it in 
the JoTRNAL, and it was stamped on every in- 
voice I received from the jobber, that fellow 
Smith down at Chapel Hill certainly is doing 
around, and now here you are. I certainly am 
coming to see what it's all about." So, for the 
benefit of the eastern druggists this is the ammu- 
nition we used. We will now go back to the time 
after the Asheville Meeting. 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Retail Drug Institute 

For many years the Presidents of your Asso- 
ciation have recommended extension courses, re- 
fresher courses, institutes of pharmacy, a series 
of lectures, clinics, etc. During this administra- 
tion we have succeeded in making a start in this 
direction in the form of a "Retail Drug Insti- 

On November 18, your Executive Committee, 
in joint session vjrith the Board of Pharmacy, met 
in Chapel Hill to hear a proposal from a repre- 
sentative of the State Department of Education 
for a program on "Distributive Education for the 
Druggists." We felt that this was just what we 
had wanted for a long time, and was unanimously 
approved by both bodies. As a result, the pro- 
gram was started in the Greensboro area on Feb- 
ruary 3, and is now in operation in the Durham 
area, as you know. I visited two of the classes 
in Greensboro and was very much impressed with 
the interest taken. 

Miss Noble Honored 

On December 2, at the Carolina Inn in Chapel 
Hill, the members of your Executive Committee, 
at their personal expense, were hosts at a banquet 
honoring Miss Alice Noble. We had as guests 
twenty-two of her closest Chapel Hill friends, in- 
cluding President Frank Graham, Dean R. B. 
House, Prof. Rose, Dr. Jacobs, Dr. Burlage, of 
the University, and Dr. M. C. S. Noble, father 
of the honoree. 

A gift from her many friends in the Associa- 
tion was presented in recognition of her many 
years of loyal and efficient service. 

At a later meeting of the Executive Committee, 
Miss Noble was made an Honorary Member of 
your Association. She is the first woman to re- 
ceive this honor in North Carolina. This action 
on the part of the Committee was a source of 
great satisfaction to me as I felt it was so richly 

Much of the success attained by our Associa- 
tion, our School of Pharmacy, and our Carolina 
Journal of Pharmacy is due to her untiring 

Pharmacy has no better friend in North Caro- 
lina than Miss Alice Noble. She is acquainting 
the whole South with pharmacy and pharmacists 
in North Carolina through the columns of the 
South Eastern Drug Jourruxl. 

In January your Executive and Legislative 
Committees, in joint session with the Board of 
Pharmacy and our Attorney, met in Raleigh to 
consider our legislative program. We were in- 
formed that an Amendment to our Uniform Nar- 
cotic Act would be introduced at the request of 
Governor Broughton and the Federal officials. 
This Amendment would place on prescription only 
every exempt preparation we now have with the 
exception of those containing one grain of codeine 
to the fluid ounce. Included in this list are Pare- 
goric, Godfrey's Cordial, Bateman Drops, Lead 
and Opium Wash, Brown Mixture, Stokes Ex- 

pectorant, Syrup Cocillana, and many other well- 
known cough syrups. 

It was evident to us that this would be detri- 
mental to the best interests of our members, and 
we decided to oppose such legislation. We were 
of the opinion that if such legislation was really 
needed it should be enacted by the Federal Gov- 
ernment rather than by the individual states. 
Congress was in session at that time and is at 
the present time. The Narcotic Agent was ad- 
vised of this action and the bill was never intro- 

This same bill has recently been passed by the 
New York Legislature and it seems that the drug- 
gists knew very little about its passage, and now 
are up in arms trying to get it repealed. The 
New York druggists have accused their Legisla- 
tive Committee of negligence in not informing 
them that such a bill had been introduced. I do 
not think that such a thing could happen in 
North Carolina. 

During this session no laws detrimental to 
pharmacy were passed, and for the first time in 
several years no bills were introduced to lower 
the standards of pharmacy. 

All labor bills were defeated and much pro- 
posed adverse legislation was headed off due to 
the excellent work of your Committee and At- 

We failed to get enacted into law our own pro- 
posed legislation due to some very unusual situa- 
tions which will be explained in the report of the 
Legislative Committee. We were very fortunate in 
having as Chairman of this Committee, Mr. Paul 
Thompson of Fairmont, a former member of the 
House of Representatives, who did an excellent 

Student Branch 

In March it was my pleasure to visit the Stu- 
dent Branch in Chapel Hill. Although I went 
down there with some fear and misgivings, this 
proved to be one of the most enjoyable experi- 
ences of my administration. Their eagerness and 
anxiety for information on the practical opera- 
tion of a drug store was really refreshing. I have 
never seen a more attentive or appreciative audi- 
ence, and it does one's heart good to observe their 

Realizing that a majority of them had never 
had any drug store experience, I told them of 
many ideas that I had found useful, and warned 
them of many pitfalls into which I had stumbled. 

"Dealing with the Customer" was one of the 
principal subjects discussed, and they were told 
that tact, courtesy, diplomacy, hard common 
sense, and good judgment would be required. 

An explanation of the difference between cour- 
tesy and diplomacy that I once heard was passed 
on to them, and here it is: "If a gentleman 
should accidentally walk into a strange bath- 
room and find a lady in the tub, and he should 
say, 'Pardon me, please,' and immediately walk 
out, that would he courtesy. But. if he should 
say, 'Pardon me, "Sir," ' that would be diplo-

I was delighted to see so many young ladies 
in the School of Pharmacy, and am of the opin- 
ion that as more of them enter our profession we 
will have cleaner drug stores, more orderly ar- 
ranged, and a more wholesome atmosphere pre- 

I cannot help but feel that we are not doing 
our full duty by our Student Branch members. 
In their report at the Charlotte Meeting, an 
invitation was extended for druggists to visit 
them. We should do this, if for no other reason 
than a selfish one, that the graduates be better 
prepared to meet the everyday problems when 
they enter our stores. But a far better reason 
would be that we could have a small part in 
helping those who are to carry on in our foot- 
steps, and make our profession even better than 
it is today. 

Our School of Pharmacy is doing an excellent 
.iob of ijreparing its students for our prescrip- 
tion departments, but they do not meet customers 
or sell merchandise over the counter in the lab- 
oratory. It is up to us to see our duty and do 
it. A pharmacist, who is not a store owner, 
would be an ideal visitor as many questions 
would be asked him that might not be a.sked of 
an owner. We should have a representative of 
every type of store in the state to visit them. 
A speech is not necessary, if so I would have 
been doomed. Just a few comments, throw the 
meeting open to questions, and you will have a 
lot of fun. You may rest assured that you will 
receive a very cordial welcome from each and 
every member of the Faculty and Student Branch. 

Drug Clubs 

On April .S, Secretary Smith and I visited the 
newly organized Wayne County Retail Druggists 
Association at Goldsboro. We ate western steak 
in an eastern town. We were delighted with the 
interest in Association affairs shown, and feel 
sure that a meeting in that section will do a 
great deal of good. 

On this trip we visited every drug store in 
Goldsboro, Smithfield, and Clayton. 

We have local drug clubs in most of the larger 
cities and they are doing e.xcellent work, and 
when the parent Association calls on them for 
help it alway.s comes forth immediately. I think 
one of our needs now is for the formation of 
County or Multi-County Clubs or Associations. 

Local clubs promote good fellowship, mutual 
problems can be solved, and existing difficulties 
can be controlled. Eating together makes the 
road much smoother. 

They can make the State Association more ac- 
tive and interesting, and are excellent training 
grounds for state Association officers. 

Wentern Trip 

Secretary Smith and I spent the week of 
April 7 visiting the drug stores in the western 
part of the state. Starting in at Gastonia. we 
called on every one between there and Murphy. 
Our efforts were directed toward getting new 

members, reviving interest in old ones, collecting 
dues, building good will for the Association, and 
extending invitations to this Convention. 

We made many pleasant contacts and many of 
our members seemed to appreciate a visit from 
their officers. I picked up many good ideas for 
our own stores. One thing that I noticed was 
the need of better lighting in some of the stores, 
while in many others recent improvements had 
been made, with excellent results. I feel sure 
that the talk on "Better Lighting" on this pro- 
gram will be beneficial to many of us. 

After spending one week on the road I came 
to the conclusion that if every owner of a drug 
store in North Carolina would do likewise that 
ever after, for the members of our T. M. A., I 
feel sure that life would be much sweeter, and I 
know their expense accounts would be much 
smaller. I have made a resolution that, starting 
next week, I am going to try to be more con- 
siderate of them. I have an idea that those who 
have called on me during the past month will 
be glad to hear it. These men are real friends of 
the druggists, as they travel over the state and 
pick up good ideas, and pass them on to \is in 
other towns. They are most helpful to us, and 
can be especially so to the young pharmacist just 
starting in business for himself. A true member 
of the T. M. A. will advise him wisely rather than 
sell him more merchandise than he really needs. 

Another way in which they help us is in cre- 
ating a desire for our members to attend the 
sectional meetings and the annual convention by 
their sustained efforts in promoting these events. 
Tlierefore, for the time being, I would like to 
change T. M. A. to T. A. M. — "Thanks a Million." 

The Women's Auxiliary is a vital part of our 
organization and is doing its duty in promoting 
the interests of Pharmacy. 

In 1932 a loan fund was started for needy 
students of our School of Pharmacy. This fund 
has now grown to more than $900, a very neat 
sum to carry on this work. I would like to ex- 
press to them my sincere thanks for their con- 
tinued interest and cooperation. 

Future Growth 

As to the future growth of the Association, I 
am very optimistic and feel that the coming year 
will be more successful than the past, as the 
President and Secretary will be only twelve miles 
apart and can go over the affairs of the Associa- 
tion more frequently. There are many good phar- 
macists who are prominent and substantial citizens 
in their respective communities, but not mem- 
bers of our Association. Many of them have 
been dropped from the roll, and I firmly believe 
some of them can be brought back into the fold 
if we can correct a situation that is getting more 
acute with the scarcity of registered pharmacists. 
Many places of business are operating as drug 
stores without a registered pharmacist for ex- 
tended lengths of time, and we must find some 
way to help the Board in bettering this situation. 

What a person will pay for a thing depends 
not on what it is actually worth, but what he or 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

she believes it to be worth. Therefore our job 
is for each member to become a missionary and 
carrj- the gospel to the unbelievers. We should 
not condemn them but convince them that our 
cause is a common cause, and our enemies com- 
mon enemies. Druggists are bargain hunters. The 
services rendered by organized pharmacy in North 
Carolina, for the price asked, represent a genu- 
ine bargain. 


I think one way in which we can build up and 
retain our membership is for the officers to visit 
the stores more. It was my privilege to slide 
into the the President's chair with too great 
ease. Outside of attending all Executive Com- 
mittee meetings and Conventions to which I was 
sent as a delegate, I did not do much else as a 

It is impossible for the President to cover the 
whole state with the Secretary. Therefore, I sug- 
gest that the First and Second Vice-Presidents 
each travel with the Secretary, preferably in a 
section of the state other than the one in which 
he resides. By doing so he will meet many mem- 
bers in person who do not get to attend the 
Convention regularly, and when he is elevated to 
the Presidency he will be in a better position to 
appoint his committees more intelligently. 

Also, it will give some of the members an op- 
portunity to see the man for whom they have 
been voting. 

Other ways of promoting general welfare of 
pharmacy would be by making talks to the Stu- 
dent Branch, and to high-school seniors in try- 
ing to influence them in studying pharmacy, and 
by making talks during National Pharmacy Week. 

If the above suggestions meet with your ap- 
proval it would be necessary to amend Article 
II, Section 2 of the By-Laws. The following to 
be added to Article II, Section 2 : To assist the 
President and Secretary in promoting interests 
of the Association in any way the Executive 
Committee sees fit. 

Board of Pharmacy 

Our Board of Pharmacy is to be commended 
for tightning up on applications for new drug 
store permits. When such an application is re- 
ceived an inspector is sent to make a thorough 
investigation, and, according to a recent ruling, 
a minimum requirement of equipment is made 
before a permit is granted. After traveling over 
the state and seeing actual conditions I have 
come to the conclusion that there are problems 
confronting our Board of Pharmacy that cannot 
be solved by the Wisdom of King Solomon him- 
self. Ever since my early school days I have 
heard the expression, from "Murphy to Manteo," 
without realizing the full extent of its meaning. 
Two years ago I went to Manteo and got an 
idea of what a big ,iob it was to inspect the drug 
stores of North Carolina often. But not until 
last month, when I visited Murphy, did I real- 
ize the immensity of the situation. 

Tlie Board needs a lot of help in enforcing 
our Pharmacy Laws, and by enforcing the laws 
I do not have reference to those stores with only 
one pharmacist. What I refer to is those with 
not even one, operating for extended lengths of 
time. In view of the fact that approximately 
20% of the drug stores and pharmacies in North 
Carolina are owned by those other than regis 
tered pharmacists, and shortage of pharmacists at 
the present time the situation is becoming quite 
acute. I think such applicants in the future 
should be advised by the Board of such short- 
age and that the Board could not be held re- 
sponsible for supplying pharmacists. It is very 
easy for the nonregistered owner to tell the 
Board to send a pharmacist, but very hard for 
the Board to do so. 

How can we help the Board ? I have only 
one idea and it may not be worth a "Tinker's 
Dam." Each year the President appoints a Leg- 
islative Chairman in every county in the state 
and the Secretary sends a notice of such appoint- 
ment and outlines the duties. To be included in 
these duties would be the reporting of such stores 
to the Board, and when this duty has been per- 
formed then it is' the duty of the Board to send 
an inspector immediately and take the proper 
steps. Tlie above duty of the County Chairman 
should be published in the Carolina Journal of 
Ph.\rmacy, so that every drug store owner in 
the state will be informed of it, and, therefore, 
should not criticize the County Chairman for per- 
forming his duty. 


1. Continuation of Sectional Meetings 

2. Continuation of Retail Drug Institute 

3. Continuation of affiliation in N. A. R. D. 

4. That non-members be charged $1.00 annually 
for the Journal 

5. That more duties be assigned the first and 
second Vice-Presidents 

6. Formation of County and Multi-County Drug 
Clubs ""^ 

7. Observance of a Clean-up, Paint-up. and 
Brighten-up Week for our stores 

8. Inauguration of program to interest high- 
school seniors in our profession 

9. More cooperation be given Fair Trade Manu- 

10. Election of members of the Board of Phar- 
macy, by mail ballot, just as officers of the 
Association are elected. This suggestion is 
made because of the change in the By-Laws 
affecting Board Members at the last Conven- 
To make this change it will be necessary to 
amend Article I — Election of Officers, Section 5. 
of the Bj'-Laws, to read as follows : 

The North Carolina Pharmaceutical Associa- 
tion shall annually elect by mail ballot, in the 
same manner as officers are elected, from among 
the most skillful pharmacists in North Carolina, 
for a term of five years, one pharmacist to the 
State Board of Pharmacy. The same must have 
been registered as a pharmacist in North Caro- 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


lina at least five years previous to his election; 
he must be actually engaged in pharmacy; and 
shall not succeed himself; provided that this does 
not prohibit the re-election of any member of the 
present board for one additional term. 

Thanks and Appreciation 

The past year has been one of the happiest of 
my life, and I want to thank you sincerely for 
the honor and privilege of serving as your Presi- 
dent. I feel that I have gained more than I 
have given, for the many pleasant associations I 
have had. tlie friends I have made, all the de- 
lightful functions in which I have taken part 
throughoiit the state, shall always be cherished 
memories. I wish to express my deep apprecia- 
tion to my fellow officers, the Chairman and 
members of the various committees, the members 
of the Board of Pharmacy, Mr. H. C. McAllister, 
Inspector, Dean Beard, Miss Alice Noble, Attor- 
ney Bowman and the Faculty of the School of 
Pharmacy for their interest and cooperation at 
all times. 

I owe a debt of gratitude to Secretary Smith 
for every effort that he has put forth to make 
this administration a successful one. ITe has been 
sincere and conscientious in carrying out his du- 
ties and has done much of the work that I 
should have done. It has been a real pleasure 
to be associated with him. 

In conclusion I want to thank Mr. I. T. 
Reamer. Local Secretary, Mr. L. J. Loveland. 
Local Chairman of the T. M. A., and Mrs. Mor- 
gan, President of the Durham Women's Auxil- 
iary, and the members of the Durham Drug Club 
for the elaborate plans they have made for our 
entertainment and pleasure. 

To those who have had the patience and en- 
durance to remain in this room and listen to this 
lengthy report I express my deepest sympathy. 

It was moved and seconded that the Pres- 
ident 's address he referred to a Committee 
for consideration. Vice-President Rogers ap- 
pointed D. L. Boone, Sr., Chairman, Sam 
Welfare and A. C. Cecil as Committee on 
the President's Address. 

At a later session Mr. Rogers called upon 
Chairman Boone for the Committee's report 
on the President's Address. 


Your Committee met and reviewed carefully 
the address and suggestions offered by our Presi- 
dent and we desire to commend him for his un- 
tiring efforts in behalf of the Association during 
these twelve months that he has ser\-ed us so 

Suffice it to say that his report of his efforts 
is one of the most comprehensive that has been 
made to this body. His untiring efforts in seeing 

that the objectives of the Association have been 
fully carried out, is the knowledge of each one 
of us. 

He has travelled from Manteo to Murphy in 
the interest of pharmacy (which he loves so 
well) and while it was his pleasure and he re- 
ceived nnuli .ioy and plea.sure from it, we are 
confident that it was a sacrifice on his part many 
times. We offer his address and his suggestions 
to the Association. 

We. your Committee, desire to present to the 
Association suggestion number 10 which reads 
as follows: "Election of members of the Board of 
Pharmacy by mail ballot, just as officers of the 
Association are elected. This suggestion is made 
because of the change in the By-Laws affecting 
Board Members at the last Convention. To make 
this change it will be neces,sary to amend Article 
I — Election of Officers — Section 5 of the By- 
Laws, to read as follows: The North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association shall annually elect by 
mail ballot, in the same manner as officers are 
elected, from among the most skillful jiharma- 
cists in N. C. for a term of five years, one phar- 
macist to the State Board of Pharmacy. The 
same must have been registered as a pharmacist 
in N. C. at least five years previous to his elec- 
tion; he must be actually engaged in ])harmacy; 
and shall not succeed himself; provided that this 
does not iirohibit the re-election of any member 
of the present Board for one additional term.'' 

Same to- take effect as of 1942. 

Suggestion number 4 — pertaining to non-mem- 
bers being charged one dollar annually for the 
Journal. We move this suggestion be tabled. 

If there are no objections, we recommend that 
the eight remaining suggestions be endorsed as 
a whole and that the Executive Committee be 
instructed to see that same is jjroperly attended to. 

We further recommend that a vote of appre- 
ciation and tlianks be extended to President Hol- 
lingsworth for his untiring efforts during his 
administration in behalf of the N. C. druggists, 
and beloved Association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) D. L. BOONE, Chairman, 

At the conclusion of the report, sugges- 
tions No. 10 and No. 4 were voted on indi- 
vidually ami the remainder were voted on as 
a wliole. With the exception of suggestion 
No. 4, wliicli received an unfavorable vote, 
all (it I'lcsidciit llollingsworth 's sugges- 
tions were adopted by the Association. 
Upon Mr. Boone 's motion the President 's 
report was adopted. President HoUings- 
worth was accorded a rising vote of thanks 
for his splendid report on the activities of 
the past year, and his recommendations.

N. C. Pharmaceutical Association Convention, 

Washington Duke Hotel, Durham, N. C. 

As you assemble for your 1941 Convention the 
National Association of Retail Druggists extends 
to the officers and members of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association its greetings and best 

wishes for a most successful series of meetings. 
At no time has there been greater need for con- 
tinued loyalty and organized cooperation among 
druggists. I trust this allegiance to local, state 
and National Associations will be reaffirmed at 
your Convention. 

Executive Secretarij. 
National Association of 
Retail Druggists. 

Mr. F. W. Hancock, Secretary-Treasurer 
of the N. C. Board of Pharmacy was called 
upon at this time for his report. He stated 
that this was his 40th annual report. He 
announced that the Beal prize was won by 
Jesse M. Pike of Concord. At the conclusion 
of the reading of the names of those mem- 
bers Avho had died during the past year, the 
entire delegation stood as a silent tribute 
to them. During this time, Mr. Hancock 
read an appropriate poem. 

At the conclusion of his report, which is 
to be found elsewhere in this issue, it was 
moved and seconded that it be adopted. 

President Hollingsworth then called for a 
report of the Membership Committee. Since 
Chairman E. V. Stephenson was unable to 
be present, Secretary W. J. Smith presented 
his report. 


Due to the unfortunate death of our Chair- 
man, Mr. Henry Clay Ross of Winston-Salem, 
thi^ committee has been unable to function as 
originally planned. I have been appointed Acting 
Chairman for the Committee and wish to submit 
the following report : 

Since June 1 of last year the Association has 
accepted 38 regular members and 18 associate 
members. The Student Branch of the Association 
at Chapel Hill has accepted 17 new members. 

In order to secure new members for the com- 
ing year a program of some nature should be 
formulated. I suggest that a current copy of the 
Carolina Journal of Pharmacy be sent to 
every prospective member in our State. Along 
with this Journal should be included a personal 
letter describing the merits of the Association and 
showing the many advantages enjoyed by its 
members. The dues paid by our members help to 
maintain and continue the Carolina Journ.\l of 
Pharmacy, the Retail Drug Institute, Merchan- 
dising Clinics, Legal Department, Pharmacists' 
Employment Bureau, Fair Trade and Legislative 
Committees, Annual Meetings of the Association, 
and various other activities that improve the 
status of the Professional Pharmacist in this

Motion was made and seconded to adopt 
report of the Membership Committee. 

President Hollingsworth then appointed 
the Xoniinating Committee: R. R. Copeland, 
Chairman, Phil Gattis, C. C. Fordham, Jr., 
J. C. Jackson, R. P. Lyon, P. J. Suttlemeyer, 
E. C. Adams. 

President Hollingsworth appointed as a 
Committee on Time and Place, J. C. Brantley, 
Jr., Chairman, Earl Tate and C. R. White- 

The next order of business was the report 
of the Executive Committee. This was read 
by Secretary Smith. 


First Sessio7i 

Tlie first meeting of the Executive Committee 
was held in Charlotte immediately after the' close 
of the 1940 Convention. AU members of the Com- 
mittee were present except Mr. Paul Bissette. 

It was moved and passed by Suttlemyre-Gattis 
that I. W. Rose continue as Acting Secretary- 
Treasurer and Managing Editor of the Oarolina 
Journal of Pharmacy for a period of six 
months, or until a permanent Secretary-Treasurer 
and Managing Editor was selected. 

On motion of Suttlemyre- Rogers, Mr. C. M. 
Andrews was re-elected Assistant Secretary-Treas- 

The President and Secretary-Treasurer were 
empowered to select a Local Secretary in confer- 
ence with Durham druggists for the 1941 meet- 
ing on motion of Fordham-Gattis. 

Motion by Fordham-Gattis was passed that the 
President di.scuss with prospective persons terms 
and conditions upon which they might accept the 
position of Secretary-Treasurer arid Managing 
Editor of the Carolina Journal ok Pharmacy 
and have them pre,sent at the next meeting of the 
Committee if thought wise. 

The meeting then ad.journed to assemble again 
on call of tlie President. 

Second Session 

The Executive Committee met on .Tune 20 in 
Chapel Hill with all members present with the 
exception of Mr. C. C. Fordham. 

The Acting Secretary-Treasurer presented a fi- 
nancial report showing the condition of the treas- 
ury. After discussion of this report the Board 
of Pharmacy, all members being present, was in- 
vited into the meetintj in order to have their 

advice and help in the matter of electing a Sec- 
retary-Treasurer of the Association. 

Tlie possibility of electing W. J. Smith, who 
was then working for the Board, was discussed. 
The Board of Pharmacy agreed, if he was elected, 
to pay him his present salary to September 1, 
1940; any traveling expense for the As.sociation 
up to this date to be paid by the Association. 

Beginning September 1, 1940, the Board of

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Publication of the Carolin.\ JouRNALt of 
Pharmacy has been continued essentially as has 
been the custom in the past. More than 8,000 
copies were mailed from the office during the 
seven-month period. 

Due to the capable management of the Journal 
by the former editors, the publication is on a 
sound financial basis. An audited statement, 
showing assets of $913 and no liabilities at the 
close of 1940, was published in the April 1941 
issue of the Journal, 

In an endeavor to give better news coverage 
of the State, a number of additional reporters 
have been added to the staff; however, every 
member of the Association is considered a Journal 
reporter to aid us in making it a more readable 
and worth-while publication. 

Xo report of the Carolina Journal of Phar- 
macy would be complete without mentioning the 
advertisers. Without their support publication of 
the Journal would have to cease or be seriously 
curtailed. Show your appreciation of the Journal 
advertisers by purchasing your merchandise from 
them whenever possible. 

Merchandising Clinic a 

Recognizing a need for proprietor-clerk train- 
ing in better merchandising, the Association spon- 
sored a Merchandising Clinic in Asheville on 
November 7, 1940, in cooperation with the Ashe- 
ville Drug Club and the Dr. T. C. Smith Drug 
Company. The success of the one-day meeting, 
attended by 81 drug store proprietors and clerks, 
representing 21 North Carolina towns, paved the 
way for continuance of such meetings in otlier 
sections of the State. 

Pharmacints' Employment Bureau 

With a rather acute shortage of registered 
pharmacists in the State, many requests reached 
us for either registered men or drug clerks which 
we were unable io meet. Despite this shortage 

an attempt was made to bring employer-employee 
together as rapidly as possible. 

Pharmacists and drug clerks desiring work in 
this State may register with the Bureau without 
cost by filling out an Employment Application 
Blank obtainable from the Secretary of the Asso- 


Four hundred eighty (480) or approximately 
50% of the drug stores in North Carolina were 
visited during the June-December period. In 
order to do this it was necessary to travel 8,857 
miles. Practically all the drug stores in Eastern 
North Carolina were visited with the exception 
of a small area near Greenville and Kinston. 
While on these trips scheduled addresses were 
delivered before most of the local drug clubs. 

Mail Ballot 

Immediately following the Charlotte meeting last 
year, the names of the nominees for office were 
printed in ballot form and mailed to the entire 
membership. The ballots were returned to Presi- 
dent Hollingsworth who delegated to the dulj 
appointed Board of Tellers the task of counting 
the votes. Serving on the Board were Messrs. 
W. S. Wolfe, Chairman, A. P. Turnmyre. and 
George E. Royall, who announced the following 
results : 

President: Ralph P. Rogers of Durham. 

First Vice-President: John C. Brantley. Jr. of 

Second Vice-President: W. M. Salley of Ashe- 

Third Vice-President: T. G. Crutchfield of 

Member of the Executive Committee for a three- 
year term: Joe Hollingsworth of Mount Airy. 


In conclusion I wish to thank those of you" 
who have helped me become acquainted with the 
duties of the Secretary-Treasurer, particularly the 
Executive Committee, Miss Alice Noble and Dean 
Beard of the State University School of Phar- 
macy. Grateful acknowledgment is accorded the 
Board of Pharmacy for their cooperation and 
financial help to the Association; to Mr. H. V. 
McAllister for his advice and valuable assistance 
in collecting dues; and to the University authori- 
ties who furnished office space for the Secretary- 
Treasurer without cost to the Association.

General Report 

The membership roll on May 1, 1941 was 891; 
12 regular, 6 associate, and one honorary mem- 
ber being added from January 1 to May 1. 1941. 
During this same period two regular members 
died : 

Samuel Monroe Turner, Burlington. February 
16, 1941. 

Henry Clay Ross, Winston-Salem. January 8, 

One regular member resigned this year: 

Clayton Smith Curry of Memphis, Tennessee, on 
January 12, 1941. 

By means of funds secured from the State and 
Federal governments under the George-Deen Act, 
the Association has co-operated with the State 
Department of Education in sponsoring the Re- 
tail Drug Institutes in North Carolina. Mr. W. 
Lee Moose of Mount Pleasant was employed as 
itinerant instructor to conduct the classes, the 
first being held in Greensboro. Mr. Moose will 
give a complete report of his work in connection 
with the program to be presented by the Practical 
Pharmacy and Dispensing Committee this after- 

The .second of a planned series of Mercliandis- 
ing Clinics was presented in Greensboro on 
March 5 of this year with an official registra- 
tion of 96. The response to this Clinic was very 
gratifying; sufficiently so, I believe, to justify 
continuing this type of program in the future. 
If present plans materialize, a Clinic will be pre- 
sented in Eastern North Carolina early tliis sum- 

Personal visits to the drug stores of the State 
have been continued although less time has been 
available for this type of work due to the fact 
that tlie Secretary-Treasurer was kei)t busy in 
Raleigh on legislative matters for three months. 
President HoUingsworth accompanied me on a 
number of these trips and helped greatly in carry- 
ing the Association program to the members. 

His E.vcellency, Governor J. Melville Broughtoii, 
on April 28 commissioned Mr. Marion Butler Mel- 
vin a member of the Board of Pharmacy for a 
five-year period. Mr. Melvin thus succeeded him- 
self as an examiner. 

In concluding this preliminary report for 1941 
I ask that you consider carefully the facts and 
figures which have .iust been presented so that 
we may plan for the future. In order that the 
Association may continue its constructive pro- 
gram, it will be necessary for every member to do 
his or her share to improve the financial condi- 
tion of the organization by paying dues prompt- 
ly, and by co-operating with his State and Local 
officials so that we may become more closely 
organized in our efforts to improve conditions in 
the profession. 

Let us work together to make 1941 a banner 
year for the North Carolina Pharmaceutical .Asso- 

Respectfully submitted,

Mr. Aksel Knudstrup of the Hygrado Syl- 
vania Corporation presented an interesting 
talk on "Fluorescent Lighting." 

By Aksel Knudstrup 

Mr. Knudstrup presented a very inform- 
ative address which he made more interest- 
ing by the use of blackboard diagrams. He 
pointed out the various advantages of 
fluorescent lighting and compared it to 
present-day methods of illumination. He 
listed the four systems of lighting: (1) di- 
rect lighting system; (2) indirect lighting 
system; (3) semi-indirect lighting system; 
(4) direct indirect lighting system. He ex- 
plained these in detail and impressed upon 
his audience the fact that the quality of 
light was of much more importance than 
the quantity of light. He further stated that 
glare was one of the things to be avoided 
in a lighting system, especially reflected 
glare from glossy surfaces. He then went 
on to say that the various colors which can 
be obtained in fluorescent lighting are made 
by the various combinations in which phos- 
phorus is used. Another advantage of flu- 
orescent lighting wliich lie pointed out was 
that it is oO% cooler than old lighting 

By the use of another blackboard diagram 
he showed how a typical show window is 
divided into zones for lighting. He went on 
witli a warning that equipment for fluores- 
cent lighting must be of good quality in 
order to get the maximum service from it. 

At the conclusion of his talk many ques- 
tions were asked by the druggists which 
showed their enthusiasm on this matter. 

In the absence of Mr. W. A. Queen, Pres- 
ident of the National Association of Food 
and Drug Oflicials, W. Lee spoke on 
Labeling under the Food, Drug and Cos- 
metic Act. 


By W. L. Moose 

In the course of his informal talk, Mr. 
Moose touched on various proposals for 
changes to be made in the Food, Drug and 
Cosmetic Act and what they would mean to 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

the druggist. A specific point was made of 
the fact that there will be a restriction on 
dosages of certain drugs and restriction of 
amounts that can be sold to any one person 
during a certain period. He stressed the 
fact that all labels would have to carry full 
information concerning contents of a pack- 
age as a safeguard to the public. He also 
informed the druggists that a resolution was 
to be submitted asking the State for money 
for enforcement of this Act. Following his 
talk, there was an informal discussion by 
the members. 

The next order of business was the report 
of the delegates to the N. A. R. D. conven- 
tion. Chairman J. A. Goode made a brief 
talk in wliich he praised various aspects of 
the meeting. He stated that 41 states were 
represented and that N. C. was well repre- 
sented by C. C Fordham, Jr., Phil Gattis, 
G. L. Eubanks, E. F. Eimmer, Paul Bissette, 
George Matthews, D. L. Boone, Sr., P. J. 
Suttlemyre, Sam Welfare, C. R. Whitehead, 
Joe Hollingsworth, P. A. Hayes, Dr. E. 
V. Zoeller and J. A. Goode. Chairman Goode 
was especially complimentary about the ex- 
cellent drug show, the splendid speakers, 
and the discussions of various phases of 
drug store operation. Mr. Goode went on to 
say that North Carolina had contributed a 
good deal to the N. A. E. D., especially 
through C. C. Fordham, Sr., Jim Stowe, 
C. A. Eaysor, C. L. Eubanks, etc. At this 
convention C. C. Fordham, Jr., was ap- 
pointed to the Finance Committee, Joe Hol- 
lingsworth on Resolutions Committee, and 
J. A. Goode on Nominating Committee. 

Chairman Goode then called on some of 
the other North Carolinians attending the 
convention. Sam Welfare, C. C. Fordham, 
Jr., Clyde Eubanks, Phil Gattis, P. J. Suttle- 
myre, and Dr. Zoeller all contributed a few 

President Hollingsworth called on J. 
Floyd Goodrich, Secretary-Treasurer of the 
T. M. A. for a talk. 


By J. Floyd Goodrich 

This talk was carried in full in the August 
issue of the Carolina Journal op Phar- 

At the conclusion of this address, session 
was adjourned to reconvene that afternoon. 


The third session was called to order by 
President Hollingsworth on Wednesday 
afternoon at 2:30. 

Historian J. G. Beard was called upon to 
give his report. 

By J. G. Beard 

When I was made Secretary of the Association 
in 1912 very few records and no photographic 
material were available to give me or any similar 
officer a solid foundation of information on which 
to build. Starting with this handicap it was a 
painful and difficult task to get completely oriented. 
A resolve was made then to build up this aspect 
of Association work. Twenty-nine years later it 
is a pleasure to report that perhaps no state 
pharmaceutical organization in this country has a 
greater supply of historical source material than 
has the North Carolina Association. Diligent 
efforts have been made to collect and render usable 
every possible item that may now or later prove 
helpful in perpetuating all past and current facts 
that bear upon the profession of pharmacy in this 
State. Much of this material has been reproduced 
in the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy; much 
more has a secure place in the archives of the 
Historian that is immediately available to all 
interested persons. This work has not been the 
product of any one person since literally hundreds 
of people have co-operated, but one person must 
be singled out for recognition, and it is a pleasure 
to mention this person's name — Miss Alice Noble. 
Endowed with a natural interest in events and 
persons of the past she entered eagerly into the 
jirogram of collecting and filing data and to her 
belongs much credit for the progress that has 
been made. It is impossible to give a real de- 
scription of the material now on hand. Roughly 
and briefly it falls into the following category: 

1. Scrapbooks of newspaper clippings covering 
annual and sectional meetings. 

2. A file containing a separate card for every 
person who has been granted a license in this 
State citing year of licensure and all available 
data concerning him or her together with a cross 
reference to any applicable material. There is a 
similar file for all persons who belong to the 
Association with date of affiliation and other 
pertinent facts. 

3. Whenever an individual becomes a produc- 
tive agent whether as an officer, Board member, 
committeeman or what not, a larger sheet is set 
aside for such person. As collected facts con- 
tinue to grow a separate folder is made for the 
individual into which go newspaper clippings, his 
or her photograph, interesting snapshots, in fact 
every possible item that has human interest.

4. We have a valuable set of lantern .slides 
that contains the pictures of every chief officer of 
the Association and every member of the Board 
of Pharmacy from the very beginning to the 
present time. This project was started many 
years ago and is being kept up to date. At 
annual meetings from time to time these slides 
will be exhibited. They were last shown at the 
High Point convention in 1939. 

In addition to the above mentioned historical 
activities on behalf of the Association we in the 
School of Pharmacy are endeavoring to add to 
our museum whatever items of the past that have 
been a part of drug stores in North Carolina. In 
this collection are old-fashioned scales, show- 
bottles, lithographed shelf bottles, mortars, pre- 
scription files, cork presses, and what not. We 
also have a collection of convention badges that 
date back for many years. The State does not ap- 
propriate any funds for such a project and we 
must rely entirely upon gifts if the museum is to 
grow. Since Howell Hall, the home of the School, 
is the only place in the State in which to house 
such objects, it is hoped that more jjeople will see 
fit to give or lend to the museum anything that 
keeps alive the story of Pharmacy's yesterdays. 
Many of you know of another feature of Howell 
Hall. I refer to the large number of framed 
photographs of North Carolina pharmacists who 
adorn our walls. So far as known your school 
at Chapel Hill is the only one in America that 
pays greatest homage to its own state pharma- 
cists. To them we owe our existence; to their 
service our work is dedicated; upon their active 
support we must always depend. What could 
be more natural, therefore, than that our simple 
tributes should be paid to them?

"Doctor X Calling," a skit, was pre- 
sented by Professors I. W. Rose and M. L. 
Jacobs of the Pharmacy School of the Uni-

to Pharmacist Ed Fuller, who ran into diffi- 
culties in filling them and was rescued by 
Professor Rose. The entire audience enjoyed 
this skit immensely since most of them had 
had similar experiences to those encountered 
by Pharmacist Fuller. 

C. H. Smith, President of the T. M. A., 
was called on and made a short talk in which 
he announced that a list of the T. M. A. 
members would be mailed to all pharmacists 
and ask their cooperation with these mem- 

At the conclusion of this short talk, mo-

On Thursday morning prizes were awarded 
through a quiz program styled "Professor 
J. Q. & S. " Participating in this were mem- 
bers whose lucky numbers were drawn. They 
included J. S. Rudisill of Forest City, C. J. 
James of Hillsboro, S. M. Edwards of Ay-

Matthews, Roseboro, Paul Webb of Shelby, 
Wilson Simmons of Winston-Salem, A. B. 
Kunkle of Conover, C. C. Fordham, Jr. of 
Greensboro and J. T. Vinson of Gold.sboro. 

The convention was then called to order 
by President Ilollingsworth. The first busi- 
ness of the morning was the appointment 
of a Committee on Time and Place. Mem- 
bers appointed were J. C. Brantley, Jr., 
Cliairman, Earl Tate and C. R. Wliitehead. 
Tliey were asked to meet and make their 
report at the last session.

President HoUingsworth then called upon 
Mr. F. 0. Bowman for his report as Attor- 
ney for the N. C. P. A. and also as Executive 
Secretary of the Fair Trade Committee. 


Mr. President and Members of the North Caro- 
im« Pharmaceutical Association: 

I have the honor to submit at this time my 
Twenty-First Annual Report as Attorney for your 

Inasmuch as I am scheduled to present my 
report as Executive Secretary of the Fair Trade 
Committee at tomorrow morning's session, this 
report will be confined in the main to legislative 
work, both prior to and during the 1941 General 
Assembly. An effort will be made to furnish a 
fairly accurate resume of the many proposals sub- 
mitted directly affecting retail druggists and the 
drug industry that were considered by the Legis- 
lature and either killed or enacted into law. 

The 1941 General Assembly 
The 1941 General Assembly convened on Janu- 
ary 8th and adjourned on March 15th. The sixty- 
eight-day session being the shortest since 1927 
and less than one-half as long as did the historic 
Legislature of 1931. Again, fewer bills were in- 
troduced and passed by this Legislature than by 
any other in more than a decade. 

The reasons attributed for such a short session 
are (1) the fact that a comfortable majority of 
the members of both the House and Senate fol- 
lowed the command and dictates of the Governor 
in pushing through his Legislative program in 
virtually every instance without hesitancy and to 
an extent unequaled before in the opinion of 
political observers. (2) Because the General 
Assembly of 1939 had enacted the Revenue Act 
as a permanent one, which meant that changes 
made in the existing tax laws could be made only 
by amending the permanent Revenue Act. Here- 
tofore, several weeks have been devoted to hearings 
on the numerous sections of the Revenue Bill. 
This time Schedule B which imposes and pro- 
vides for all license and privilege taxes was 
adopted by the Joint Finance Committee in less 
than ten minutes time, and but few hearings were 
held on the amendments submitted by the Ad- 
visory Budget Commission and members of the 
Legislature; and (3) because of the chaotic and 
tragic conditions prevailing throughout a large 
part of the none too civilized world, brought about 
by mad men seeking to overthrow democi-atic gov- 
ernments and to destroy the democratic way of 
life, the lawmakers felt it a solemn duty to ex- 
pedite the Legislative business of the State, in 
order that the people thereof would be able to 
carry on their own occupations and businesses 
and be able to concentrate their best efforts as- 
sisting in the Great National Defense Program. 

Though fewer bills were submitted to the last 
Legislature than any in a long time there were 
as many, or perhaps more, legislative proposals af- 

fecting us that had to be dealt with than has been 
the case heretofore. While it is true we failed 
to secure the passage of the two measures spon- 
sored by the Association; namely, The Prophy- 
lactic Bill and the bill relative to fees for recipro- 
cal licenses and for the re-registration of phar- 
macists, we were able either to forestall or suc- 
ceeded in killing several bills that would have cost 
the druggists of the State thousands upon thous- 
ands of dollars and which would have put many 
drug stores completely out of business. Likewise, 
we were able to head off bills calling for the re- 
peal of the Fair Trade Act. Two such bills had 
been drafted prior to the convening of the Legis- 
lature and were brought to Raleigh by members 
of that body who had declared it their intention 
to introduce them. Other members had expressed 
their opposition to the Fair Trade Law and were 
ready to join in to ask for its repeal. Had it not 
been for the contact work with Representatives 
last fall, prior to the convening of the Legislature 
and the constant work throughout the Legislative 
Session by Representatives of your Association, in 
all probability we would not have had the Fair 
Trade Law today. 

We were able also to forestall two bills that 
would have asked the Legislature to issue special 
licenses. Incidentally, for the first time in seven 
Legislatures not a single bill was introduced to 
lower the standards of Pharmacy. Again, we 
succeeded in forestalling the introduction of two 
bills that would have placed a gallonage tax upon 
all fountain syrups — one would have provided for 
a tax of 15c per gallon to be absorbed by the 
fountain operator; the other for the tax of 80c 
per gallon, requiring the fountain operators to 
collect from the consumer a tax of Ic on each 5c 
drink. In other words, no legislation either plac- 
ing additional taxes or in any way detrimental 
to Pharmacy or to the retail drug business was 
permitted to be enacted into law. 

Sales Tax Amendment 

As already indicated but few changes were made 
in the existing tax laws of the State. Tlie most 
important was an amendment to the Sales Tax 
Law, exempting therefrom "All food and food 
products for human consumption." The amend- 
ment defines the term : 

" 'Food and food products for human consump- 
tion' and states that it 'shall be given its usual 
and ordinary meaning, but shall not include malt 
or vinous beverages, soft or carbonated drinks, 
sodas, or beverages such as are ordinarily sold 
or dispensed at stores, bars, stands or soda foun- 
tains or in connection therewith, candies or con- 
fectionaries, medicines, tonics, and preparations 
in liquid, powdered, granular, tablet, capsule, or 
pill form sold as dietary supplements' ; nor does 
'food and food products for human consumption' 
include prepared meals or foods sold or served on 
or off the premises by restaurants, cafes, cafe- 
terias, hotel dining rooms, drug stores, or other 
places where prepared meals or foods are sold 
or served." 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


The sales tax statute heretofore has exempted 
only basic food commodities, as follows: Flour, 
meal, meat, lard, milk, molasses, salt, sugar, cof- 
fee, bread and rolls. The 1941 Act, effective July 
1st, 1941, will exempt All Food and Food Prod- 
ucts for Human Consumption. 

Xo change was made with respect to exempt 
medicines. Our exemption remains the same as 
heretofore. "Sales of medicines sold on prescrip- 
tions of physicians or medicines compounded, proc- 
essed or blended by the druggists offering the 
same for sale at retail" are exempt from the 3% 
sales tax. 

An attempt was made to get this exemption ex- 
tended so as to include all drugs and medicines. 
This was turned down because of the pre-election 
campaign pledge of Governor Broughton to the 
effect that the only change that would be made in 
the Sales Tax Law would be the exemption of all 
food products. Likewise, the same was true with 
respect to proposals to reduce the Sales Tax to a 
flat 2% without exemptions. Several members 
of the General Assembly would have preferred 
this, as well as retailers generally, I think, but 
in deference to the Governor's pledge the Legis- 
lature adopted that course. 

Wage and Hour Bills 

Perhaps the most bitter fight of the Legisla- 
ture developed over minimum wage and maxi- 
mum hour proposals. In all, four major measures 
of this type were proposed. One was sponsored 
by labor and its purpose was to make the State 
Labor Laws conform to the rigid Federal Act, 
both as to wages paid and hours worked. Another, 
which embodied substantially the recommendations 
of the minority report of the Fair Labor Stand- 
ards Commission, created by the 1939 General 
Assembly, was slightly less drastic, in that it 
provided for a minimum wage of 25c per hour and 
maximum hours of 48 hours per week. Still two 
others, which rex)resented the majority opinion 
of the Commission, neither of which fi.xed a mini- 
mum wage, but did establish maximum hours of 
48 per week for female employees and 55 hours 
for male employees. All existing exemptions in 
the present law were eliminated, except those 
in a supervisory or executive positions and the 
learned professions, including "employers employ- 
ing not more than 8 persons" and "all male 
clerks in merchantile establishments." All of 
these bills provided for time and one-half com- 
pensation for all hours worked in excess of the 
basic hours prescribed. 

Several hearings were held by the Labor Com- 
mittees of the House and Senate. Finally, a Sub- 
committee was appointed to study the bills and 
report back its recommendations. Later, the Sub- 
committee reported that no agreement could be 
reached on any of the ijroposed measures, where- 
upon all of the pending wage and hour bills were 
killed by the Joint Labor Committee, despite the 
fact that this Legislation had the support of the 
Governor, the Department of Labor, the Labor 
Unions, other groups and organizations in addi- 
tion to many prominent individuals throughout 

the State. By way of parenthesis, this is the only 
instance in which the Governor received a set- 
back in his Legislative Program. 

I feel confident that the members of this Asso- 
ciation have no sympathy with emploj'ers who 
work their employees unreasonably long hours or 
at wages not commensurate with the services per- 
formed, but because of the very nature of the 
retail drug business and the varied and unique 
services it is called upon to render the public, 
an equitable wage and hour bill, applicable to all 
retailers irrespective to size and classification, can- 
not be drafted. 

Other Labor Bills, all of which were killed, are 
as follows: (1) To set the working hours of male 
employees in merchantile establishments at not 
more than 12 hours per day or 60 hours per 
week; (2) To prohibit employment of any person 
for longer than six consecutive hours during 
work period without an interval of at least one 
half hour for lunch; and (3) to exempt from 
the maximum hour law employees and employers 
engaged in processing, canning, or packing of 
perishable fruits or vegetables during a period or 
periods in aggregate of not more than 14 weeks 
in any calendar year. 

Barbiturate Bills 

There was considerable agitation on the part of 
a group of Legislators throughout the Session for 
the enactment of a law limiting the sale of all 
barbiturates, including all hypnotic derivatives to 
prescription. It was the feeling, also, of the 
Department of Agriculture charged with the en- 
forcement of the new drug law that this should be 
done. There was and is now a difference of opin- 
ion among the members of our own ranks on the 
subject. Some want such a law enacted and 
others do not. 

Two bills were introduced. The first "would 
have placed drugs containing barbituric acid, 
which includes luminal, phenobarbital, nembutal, 
and all barbituric products, within the definition 
of narcotic drugs." When it was brought to the 
attention of the Health Committee that the bill 
was not only improperly drawn but that barbi- 
turates fell within an entirely different classifi- 
cation from narcotics, it was prom)itly given an 
unfavorable report. 

The other bill would have amended the Food 
Drug and Cosmetic Law by placing thereunder all 
hypnotic drugs, including derivatives of all kinds 
and providing that sales of some should likewise 
be made pursuant to prescriptions. This measure 
was not introduced until later in the session and 
did not survive the Calendar Committee, which 
during the fini.shing-up rush killed bills right and 
left, including some meritorious ones and at the 
same time oked others that should not have been 

In the meantime, we had succeeded in getting 
the Joint Appropriations Committee to grant a re- 
quest made by the Department of Agriculture for 
an appropriation of $25,000.00 for the enforce- 
ment of the new Drug and Cosmetic Law. Later, 
however, a subcommittee appointed to trim ap- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

propriations, working with the Governor struck 
this item from the list, again leaving the Board 
of Agriculture without funds to carry on the very 
important and necessary work that should be done 
in connection with the Drug and Cosmetic Law. 

It is my understanding that an effort will be 
made to get the Governor and Council of State 
to make an appropriation from the Emergency 
Fund for this work. It has been suggested that 
this organization should adopt a resolution asking 
that this be done. My feeling is that this action 
by you would carry much weight. I trust that 
such a resolution will be adopted at this Con- 

In this connection, another bill pertaining to 
drugs was prepared, amending the Uniform Nar- 
cotic Act by placing the sale of cannabis in all 
its forms. 

A bill was prepared, amending the Uniform Nar- 
cotic Act placing the sale of cannabis in all of 
its forms and all exempt narcotic preparations, 
including paregoric, Bateman's drops, Godfrey's 
Cordial, etc., on prescrijjtion only, and exempting 
from prescription requirement preparations con- 
taining codeine, and, further to make provision 
for the sale of narcotic drugs to certain govern- 
mental agencies engaged in the National Defense 
Program. It is understood this bill was drafted 
at the request of the Governor, who had been 
asked by Federal Officials to have such legislation 
enacted in the State. The bill, however, was 
never introduced. 

Prophylactic Bill 

We were unable to get very far with the Pro- 
phylactic Bill which was sponsored by the Asso- 
ciation "Relating to the Sale, Control and Licens- 
ing of the Sale of Appliances, Drugs and Medic- 
inal Preparations Intended or Having Special 
Utility for the Prevention of Venereal Diseases." 
Considerable work was done on the proposal prior 
to the convening of the Legislature by Secretary 
Smith and myself. We succeeded in getting it 
endorsed by our State Health officer and others, 
including some members of the General Assembly. 
Still more work was done after the Legislature 
convened — both at Raleigh and by many of you 
back home. Dr. Tom Long, veteran Senator and 
Legislator always interested in public health meas- 
ures, had agreed to introduce the bill and at one 
time its passage looked somewhat favorable. 

The untimely and sudden death of Dr. Long 
was a severe setback and we were again faced 
with the task of getting some one else to intro- 
duce and sponsor the bill. Because of the nature 
of the legislation, we found this rather difficult 
to do. It was finally introduced in the House 
by our druggist representative Ray Fulghum and 
others and was sent to the Calendar Committee. 
This Committee could not be prevailed upon to 
report the bill favorably as written. It did, 
however, agree to report out a modified bill which 
would have established standards for the mer- 
chandise, without restricting the sales thereof to 
drug stores and without making adequate provi- 
sion for its enforcement. Failure on our part to 

acquiesce to this proposal, the Committee reported 
the bill unfavorably. 

Board Amendment 

Another measure introduced by Representative 
Fulghum and sponsored by the Association — To 
permit the Board of Pharmacy to set the fee for 
licenses by reciprocity to conform with the fees 
imposed by Boards of Pharmacy in other States, 
and to require a fee of $5.00 for each year of 
failure to renew a license, in addition to the same 
fee as for original registration, except where satis- 
factory proof was furnished that a similar fee 
had been paid to another State — was finally killed 
by the Senate Calendar Committee during the clos- 
ing hours of the Session, after it had passed the 
House. There appeared to be no opposition to the 
bill, but members of the Senate Committee stated 
that it reached the Senate too late to be given 
consideration by that body. 

Unfair Sales Practices Bill 
The Utffair Sales Practices Bill, sponsored by 
the North Carolina Jobbers Association together 
with several retail organizations, met the same 
fate as was accorded a similar measure by the 
1939 General Assembly. The measure provided 
that advertising, offer to sell, or sale of any mer- 
chandise, by retailer or wholesaler, at less than 
cost as defined, with the purpose of unfairly di- 
verting trade 6r otherwise injuring competitors, 
deceiving purchasers, lessening competition, re- 
straining trade, or tending to create a monopoly 
by unfair methods was contrary to public policy, 
and therefore illegal. Penalties for violation, 
definitions, injunctive relief and exemptions were 
also Tirovided. 

Trade Mark Registration BUI 
A most unusual taxing measure providing for 
the registration of all Trade Marks was intro- 
duced in the Lower Branch of the General As- 
sembly, which had it been enacted, would have 
established a new species of taxation and one that 
would have produced millions of dollars, in the 
opinion of many, a sufficient sum to pay a large 
part of the State's operating expenses. This bill 
would have required every person who manufac- 
tures, produces, prepares, packs, compounds or 
imports any goods to which a Trade Mark is 
affixed and which is to be offered for sale in the 
State, to register the Trade Mark with the Secre- 
tary of State and pay an original registration fee 
of $5.00 and a subsequent registration fee of 
$2,50 annually. 

The word Trade Mark was defined to include 
any label, term, device, emblem, stamp, ornament, 
imprint, brand, printed ticket, sign or wrapper 
that may be used for the purpose of designating 
or distinguishing any goods, wares or merchan- 
dise. Surprising as it may seem, several of the 
Legislators looked upon the bill with favor and 
felt that it should be placed upon the Statute 
Books as a jsart of the State Tax Structure. 
Finally action on the proposal was postponed in- 
definitely bv the House. 

The Cakolina Journal op Pharmacy 


The State Board of Health was the sponsor of 
a measure and succeeded in securing its passage, 
authorizing the Board to promulgate regulations 
governing sanitation in hotel, cafes, restaurants, 
tourist homes, tourist camps, summer camps and 
all other establishments where food is prepared, 
handled and served to the public at wholesale 
or retail for pay, and to inspect and grade such 
establishments. It is provided in the act that 
no establishment securing a grade less than C will 
be permitted to operate. No opposition was 
offered to this bill. Rather, there was a general 
feeling that the regulations governing eating places 
should be more drastic and inspection more fre- 

This brings to a conclusion the discussion of 
the major proposals affecting retail druggists sub- 
mitted and considered at the 1941 General As- 
sembly. Of course, there were numerous other 
minor proposals arising from time to time through- 
out the entire Legislative Session that had to be 
dealt with and disposed of in the best possible 
way. Mention of most of these have been made 
in recent issues of the Carolina Journal of 
Pharm.\ct and time does not permit calling them 
to your attention now. I have here undertaken 
to discuss only those measures and proposals 
which in my opinion are of the greatest interest 
and concern to you. 

I feel it would be a remission of duty on 
my part if mention was not made of the mer- 
chandising clinics, initiated by Secretary Smith 
and sponsored by the Association in conjunction 
with local druggist groups and wholesalers, that 
have been held in different cities of the State 
during the past year. It was my privilege to 
attend some of the clinics. From the large num- 
ber attending, the unusual interest manifested, and 
participation in the instructive, entertaining and 
interesting programs that had been arranged, to 
my mind there is no doubt but that such meet- 
ings will produce .splendid results, in that they 
will tend to create and maintain a greater inter- 
est in the State Association, thereby strengthening 
it, and, at the same time promote a better feel- 
ing and understanding locally, as well as render 
a distinct instructional service to the individual 
druggists who afford themselves of the oppor- 
tunity offered by the Clinics. 

It is my feeling, also, that the same may be 
said and with equal emi)hasis about the Program 
of Education now under way in the State for 
pharmacists, drug store managers, and retail drug 
clubs, which is si^onsored by the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association in cooperation with 
the North Carolina State Department of Educa- 
tion. These agencies are to be congratulated upon 
their selection of and being able to secure the 
services of Mr. W. Lee Moose as instructor and 
consultant to the drug store owners, managers 
and clerks of the State. By ability, e,\perience and 
training, Mr. Moose is exceedingly well qualified to 
do a good job in promoting this educational pro- 
gram. And it is my information that splendid 
progress is being made in this work. 

In view of the rather favorable legislative out- 
come, the progress made in carrying forward the 
educational program just referred to, the unusual 
interest shown by local drug clerks, besides the 
satisfactory results obtained in the many other 
Association activities, it is my belief that you 
will share with me the opinion that the druggists 
of the State have been reasonably well taken 
care of and that the year in the main has proven 
to be a successful one from the standpoint of 
what the Association has accomplished. 

Tliis opportunity is taken to express apprecia- 
tion to President HoUingsworth and the other 
officers of the Association, including the Executive 
and Legislative Committees, who have directed the 
work that has been done during the year. Chair- 
man Paul Thompson of the Legislative Committee 
especially did a fine job. An ex-legislator him- 
self, Paul has many political friends and knows 
his way around at Raleigh. 

We were fortunate in having your fellow drug- 
gist Ray Fulghum in the Legislature again. As 
he has always done Ray worked untiringly for 
the interest of the retail druggists, and for the 
betterment of pharmacy at all times. 

In conclusion, I cannot speak too highly in 
praise of the fine work done by Secretary Smith 
during the Legislative Session, in addition to what 
was required of him in carrying on his regular 
Association duties. Though this was his first 
legislative experience, he i^erformed as a veteran. 
His appearances before Legislative Committees 
were forceful and his ability to make contacts with 
lawmakers and others who might be able to help 
was uncanny. 

With ability and full energy and enthusiasm, 
W. J. Smith's appointment by the Executive Board 
as Secretary-Treasurer of the Association means 
a worthy successor to Grover Beard, a most 
worthy predecessor. 

At tlie conclusion of Mr. Bowman 's re- 
port, motion Avas made and seconded that it 
be adopted. 

Dr. Edward Spease, Director of Profes- 
sional Relations of the N. A. R. D. was 
called on by President HoUingsworth and 
gave the following address: 

THE N. A. R. D. 

By Dr. Edward Spease 

J)r. Spease 's talk covered the publications 
of the N. A. R. D., especially the special 
service booklets with emphasis upon the last 
one e.\plaining Fair Trade. 

He urged druggists to make public talk.s 
before scliools and clubs, pointing out the 
sliortage of pharmacists and the opportuni- 
ties now open in pharmacj'. He advised the 
foimation of inter-professional relations 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

committees made up of physicians, dentists 
and pharmacists, to prepare and carry out 
programs that will furnish rational medica- 
tion to the sick and conserve drugs. 

He said it is our purpose and should be 
your purpose, to urge upon the medical and 
dental professions, that they use and pre- 
scribe the legal and approved medicines 
listed in the United States Pharmacopoeia 
and in New and Nonofficial Remedies. 

The use of these medicines means indi- 
vidualized medication, or tailor-made med- 
ication for the sick; a prescription written 
for the individual patient and his needs, 
written for the particular patient, so that 
the medicine is prescribed for each one and 
not fitted to each one. This makes for 
rational practice of medicine and saves the 
money of the patient. 

After thanking Dr. Spease for his inter- 
esting talk. President HoUingsworth called 
for a report of the Visitation Committee. 
This was given by Chairman A. C. Cecil. 


The Visitation Committee composed of Miss 
Carolyn Cox of Greensboro, R. P. Lyon of Char- 
lotte, Frank Dayvault of Lenoir, W. Moss Salley 
of Asheville, and A. Coke Cecil, Chairman, of 
High Point, which was appointed by President 
Joe HoUingsworth, met at the Pharmacy Building 
at Chapel Hill on April 24 with Miss Cox, R. P. 
Lyon and A. Coke Cecil present. Mr. Dayvault 
and Mr. Salley were unable to attend. 

After meeting for a few moments with the 
faculty the committee w^s conducted over the 
building by Dean Beard and it was noted that 
the building was in an excellent state of repair 
and everything was kept in a clean and orderly 
manner for which we feel the Dean and faculty 
should be commended. 

The committee then had a session with the 
Senior Class lasting one hour. During the time 
many suggestions were brought up by members 
of the Senior Class which, in their estimation, 
would be of value to the students of the rising 
Senior Class. 

During this session Miss Cox had a special 
session with the young ladies of the Senior Class. 

At noon the committee were luncheon guests 
of the University at the new University Cafeteria. 

Immediately after lunch the committee again 
met with the faculty and took up the suggestions 
one by one as outlined by tha Senior Class. The 
faculty lent a very receptive ear and seemed 
to be very desirous of putting into effect as 
many of the suggestions as were practical. 

After this session the committee adjourned. 
(Signed) A. COKE CECIL, 


Motion was made and seconded that Mr. 
Cecil's report be adopted. 

President HoUingsworth then called for 
the report of the Student Branch of the 
N. C. P. A., which was given by Secretary 
D. F. McGowan. 

OF THE N. C. P. A. 

The Student Branch of the N. C. P. A. held 
seven meetings during the year and at least one 
additional program is scheduled. The organiza- 
tion has had a very successful and interesting year 
under the leadership of the following officers : 
President, Edwin Fuller of Louisburg; Vice-Presi- 
dent, Miss Blanche Burrus of Canton ; Secretary, 
David McGowan of Asheboro ; Treasurer, John 
Terrell of Chapel Hill ; Executive Council Mem- 
ber, Otto Matthews of R'oseboro. At each session, 
the attendance has been good and the members 
have taken an active part in the open forum 
discussions which occupy a prominent part in 
our programs. We have a total enrollment of 
62 dues-paid members. We have tried to co- 
operate in all activities of the school, and we 
are always anxious to do what we can for the 
State Association — we hope that you will call 
on us often. 

Financial Statement 

Balance from last year $ .46 

Collections for the year — 77.50 

Total $77.96 

Paid N. C. P. A $62.00 

Local Expenses 12.58 

Cash on hand 3.38 

Total - $77.96 

Some of our activities for the year are: 

1. We assisted with the first-year orientation 
program, and shortly after the University opened 
in the fall, the new students were given a "wel- 
coming party." 

2. We had speakers on our programs who dis- 
cussed various phases of pharmacy. Among these 
may be mentioned: E. P. Coffey, who is in charge 
of the Scientific Crime Detection Laboratories of 
the Federal Bureau of Investigation ; W. J. Smith, 
Secretary of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association; Dr. Ralph W. Clark, who is at the 
head of the Pharmacy Service Department of 
Merck & Company; Joe HoUingsworth, President 
of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Association; 
Paul Bissette, prominent pharmacist of Wilson ; 
and J. W. Snowden, Prescription Promotion Ex- 
pert of Pictorial Paper Package Company. At 
our final meeting we will have an all-student

By-Laws Change 

We wish to report that the branch has made 
a slight change in the Constitution and Bj'-Laws. 
At the October meeting, W. J. Sheffield made a 
motion that the following be added to Article 
IV, Sec. 3, of the By-Laws: "and in order to 
be reinstated in the association must pay a fine 
in addition to the current dues. The fine amount- 
ing to the annual dues and not to exceed one 
dollar and twenty-five cents." 

After the proposal had laid upon the table 
the required time, it was considered and favor- 
ably act-ed upon at our regular meeting on Jan. 
16. Article IV, Sec. 3, therefore, now reads: 

"Anyone in arrears at any official meeting is not 
entitled to vote and anyone neglecting to pay his 
or her annual dues for six months shall lose his 
or her membership and in order to be reinstated 
in the association must pay a fine in addition 
to the current dues. The fine amounting to the 
annual dues and not to exceed one dollar and 
Iwenty-five cents." 


On April 25 we elected the following officers 
for the school year 1941-42: 

President, Albert Mattocks of Greensboro. 

Vice-President, Miss Margaret Lloyd of Chapel 

Secretary, Miss Marsha Hood of Kinston. 

Treasurer, Mack Herrin of Clinton. 

Executive Council Member, Fred Dees of Bur- 


We are looking forward to the coming year with 
great pleasure and we hope that as many of the 
members of the N. C. P. A. as possible will attend 
our meetings. We shall always be glad to have 
you, and we assure you that you will receive a 
hearty welcome. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Motion was made and seconded for the 
adoption of this report. 

The report of the Legislative Committee 
was then called for and was given by Chair- 
man Paul n. Thompson. 


After an unsuccessful attempt (due to the flu 
ei)idpmic that was so prevelant in North Carolina 
during the month of January) your Legislative 
Committee met on .January 31, 1941, at the Sir 
Walter Hotel in Raleigh, with the following mem- 
bers present : R. A. McDuffie, M. B. Melvin, 
Ralph P. Rogers, Paul Bissette and my.self. This 
was a joint meeting with our Executive Committee 
and the members of the Board of Pharmacy along 
with our Secretary-Treasurer W. J. Smith and 
our Attorney F. O. Bowman. President Joe Hol- 
lingsworth presided over the meeting. 

Our first objective was the establishing of the 
fact that we would oppose any legislation having 
a tendency to lower the standards of the pro- 
fession of pharmacy. Let me say here that this 
is the first time in twenty years that some of this 
type of legislation was not proposed in the Gen- 
eral Assembly. 

Mr. Bowman told us that they were having a 
fine session of the legislature and that the mem- 
bers were very friendly and co-operative toward 
the measures that he felt we would be interested 

We decided to have introduced at the proper 
time the much discussed prophylactic bill which 
svould limit the sale of this type of merchandise 
to drug stores. The group opposed the removal of 
paregoric and other items from the list of exempt 
narcotic drugs. It was left up to the Legislative 
Committee whether or not to introduce an amend- 
ment to the revenue act exempting proprietary 
preparations and prepared foods served in drug 
stores from the 3% sales tax. 

Representative J. L. Crawford of Pikeville, a 
member of the 1941 General Assembly spoke to 
the group concerning his opposition to the un- 
restricted sale of drugs in outlets other than 
registered drug stores. Mr. Bowman told Mr. 
Crawford that the members were in full sym- 
pathy with his proposed legislation but in his 
opinion it would be unconstitutional; however, 
Mr. Bowman was asked to accompany Mr. Craw- 
ford to the offices of the Attorney General for a 
correct ruling on same. 

We decided to oppose any unfavorable wage 
and hour legislation. 

Our druggist member of the legislature, the 
Hon. R. T. Fulghum of Johnston County spoke 
to us and offered his full co-operation in protect- 
ing the drug interests of North Carolina. 

After considerable work on the part of Mr. 
Bowman and Mr. Smith the prophylactic meas- 
ure was introduced in the House of Representa- 
tives; however, the bill was killed in committee. 

There was a measure introduced to extend the 
unemployment compensation act from firms hav- 
ing eight emi)loyees down to five. This measure 
was likewise defeated. 

There were three or four wage and hour bills 
introduced, one by Senator Clark of Bladen and 
one by Rep. McEachern of Hoke. All of these 
bills had provisions ranging from 40 to 55 hours 
per week with a minimum wage of 25c to 40c 
per hour for the first year with provision for 
increasing thereafter, and with the approval of 
the Governor it looked as if one of these bills 
would pass. In the opinion of your committee 
either of these bills would have done more to 
retard the large, extended service that most of 
us are in the habit of rendering than any meas- 
ure that we have had to face in several years. 
Through the organized efforts of the North Caro- 
lina Merchants Association and other groups, in- 
cluding your representatives, I am happy to 
report to you that these measures were likewise 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

There was no change in the sales tax measure 
except that all foods sold by retail grocers for 
home consumption shall be exempt after July 1. 
We still have to pay tax on everything vi^e sell 
except prescriptions and compounded medicines. 

I wish to sincerely thank President Hollings- 
worth and the other members of the Legislative 
Committee for the co-operation and willing serv- 
ices they have rendered. 

You all are familiar with the splendid service 
that Mr. Bowman has rendered our association 
for a great many years. It has again been my 
pleasure to work with him in our legislative mat- 
ters and I am very grateful to him for his ef- 
forts in our behalf. 

It was my privilege two years ago to serve on 
the Legislative Committee with Mr. W. J. Smith 
who is now our Secretary-Treasurer. I think 
the Executive Committee could not have selected 
a more qualified man for this office as he has 
rendered us a most valuable service this year, 
making frequent trips to Raleigh and working 
hand in hand with Mr. Bowman, and I wish to 
thank him for his excellent services. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Legislative Committee. 

This report was adopted by motion made 
and seconded. 

President Hollingsworth called on Mr. 
Wade Gilliam, Chairman of the Papers and 
Queries Committee for their program. The 
first speaker presented by this Committee 
was Mr. A. G. McPherson, Eastern Branch 
Manager of Bauer and Black, who was in- 
troduced by Frank L. Smith. 


By A. G. McPherson 

After showing how profitable the surgical 
dressings business is, Mr. McPherson as- 
serted that "The First Aid Supplies Market 
is not changing; but it is the Market Place 
that is changing." "You have less than 
65% of a business that should be 100% 
yours. The speaker took up in detail the fol- 
lowing points for successful selling: (1) 
Right location of First Aid departuient; 

(2) Right display of surgical dressings; 

(3) Right merchandising; (4) Right pric- 
ing; (5) Right selling; and (6) Right 
stocking. "Does this six-point plan work in 
your store?" asked the speaker. 

Due to the lateness of the hour, it was 
luoved and seconded that the session ad- 

journ until afternoon at which time the pro- 
gram under the direction of the Papers and 
Queries Committee would be resumed. 


After the usual awarding of prizes, Presi- 
dent Hollingsworth called the fifth session 
to order and called upon Mr. Gilliam to re- 
sume the program presented by the Papers 
and Queries Committee. 

Mr. Howard Trumbell, General Merchan- 
dising Manager of the Owens-Illinois Glass 
Company was introduced by N. H. Harris 
and spoke on "Who Dictates the Size of 
Your Profits. ' ' 


By Howard Trumbull 

In taking up the subject of "Profits'," 
Mr. Trumbull asserted that "you must be- 
come merchandise-minded to be a successful 
pharmacist." Every drug store in the coun- 
try has one particular department different 
from any other store — that is the prescrip- 
tion department. Every prescription you re- 
ceive is a tangible evidence of confidence in 
you. The prescription department is the 
magnet to attract customers into your store. 
After a prospective customer comes in it is 
up to you to know just how much he will 
buy. You yourself decide the size of your 
profits. ' ' 

Mr. Thomas Edward Hicks, President Per- 
sonal Products Co., was introduced by T. J. 


By Thomas Edward Hicks 

You have just heard two outstanding presenta- 
tions by two men, outstanding in the drug world. 
These men have come a long way at great ex- 
pense to their companies to try and contribute 
something to this meeting, but most important of 
all in a spirit of friendship and as an example 
of what I would like to discuss with you, they 
have come to help you make more money start- 
ing tomorrow morning. 

I have chosen as a topic, "Merchandising — The 
Manufacturer and the Reailer." First, let me dis- 
pel any feeling you may have of the association 
of magic with merchandising. Merchandising is 
nothing more than "taking advantage of every 
sales opportunity." As a definition I know of no 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


better one than just that — "taking advantage of 
every sales opportunity.'' 

It has been said that merchandise well bought 
is half sold and that brings up the subject of 
buying. But first, what about the other half of 
this business of selling what we have just bought ? 

Are you receptive to suggestions of how you 
may more easily make more money? Have you 
definitely and finally made up your mind that 
any representative who calls on you is trying to 
run your business if he so much as opens his 
mouth to ask you to disi^lay his wares in a par- 
ticular way? Where has this attitude come from 
that we hear of so oft«n in the Southeast — that 
too often representatives of responsible manufac- 
turers and wholesalers are practically run out of 
our stores if they so much as dare make sugges- 
tions that seem to disturb the daily routine of 
our lives ? 

I know of no industry in the country where 
the retail outlets are as well treated or as highly 
respected as the drug industry. Even the buying 
public has protected us with laws that are the 
envy of all other classes of trade. We have our 
Boards of Pharmacy which prevent any Tom. 
Dick and Harry from operating stores. We have 
our Fair Trade Acts which permit us to make a 
reasonable profit on our merchandise. What more 
perfect set-up could we ask for? And should we 
not be thankful and repay our benefactors, the 
public, by rendering them the service of well- 
run stores, presenting good merchandise in the 
way in which they want to buy it and at fair 
prices ? 

Let's all get together on this thing and quit 
mistrusting one another. The time has come for 
the retailer to call in the representatives of the 
manufacturers and the wholesalers and ask this 
simple question, "How may I sell more of your 
goods to my customers?" But that isn't all — you 
must do something about it after they have left 
their advice. Maybe it will mean new electric 
light bulbs; maybe it will mean only washing the 
windows or re-arranging the goods but it will 
mean, I promise you, more work and better pay 
from a better satisfied group of customers. 

1. Do you have your store properly laid out to 
attract customers, and make them feel they want 
to buy in your store? There is a proper shape 
store and a proper arrangement of merchandise 
for every situation. Did you rent a store and go 
into the drug retailing business or were you in 
the business and did you rent a store to fit the 
requirements of the neighborhood? 

2. Do you display your merchandise so that 
your displays will do suggestive selling for you? 

3. Buying — Do you carry the proper assortment 
of lines and sizes? What about your competitor? 
Is he a druggist, department store, variety store, 
lunch room, hardware store? 

Are you carrying the lines that the manufac- 
turers stand behind, or do you feel that your cus- 
tomers are different and don't want nationally 

advertised products? In other words, are you so 
anxious to make a greater percentage of profit 
that you are willing to risk losing your trade to 
your competitor? I know of very few manufac- 
turers who are not willing to stand behind their 
merchandise and exchange it for other items. But 
first you must give it a try and make sure that 
your customers don't respond to the sales presen- 
tation in national advertising. Your customers 
are very little different from the customers of 
other druggists whether they be in North Caro- 
lina, Illinois, Montana or Texas, and it isn't fair 
for you to make up your mind what they will 
want to buy before you have offered them stand- 
ard goods of the reliable manufacturers. 

But, as I have said previously, the main sub- 
ject on my mind today is the attitude of the drug- 
gists of North Carolina and I sincerely hope that 
all of you will stop and realize that every sales- 
man who comes into your store has a message 
for you if you will only listen and further that 
you may take advantage of the facilities for 
making money that the sales representatives have 
to offer if you will only ask the simple question, 
"How may I sell more of your goods to my cus- 
tomers ?" 

Mr. W. J. Quinlan, Vice-President Charge 
of Sales of the Prophylactic Brush Company 
was introduced by Mr. Euy Lowery. 




By W. J. Quinlan 

For more than an hour Mr. Quinlan pre- 
sented the subjects of Fair Trade, Turnover 
of Advertised vs. Unadvertised Merchandise, 
Proper Display, Salesmanship and Retailing 
Methods to a large group of interested lis- 
teners. He urged druggists to push adver- 
tised brands, "They turn over 5.2 times a 
year; unadvertised brands turn 2.2 times 
a year." 

While discussing display Mr. Quinlan 
said: "What happens when you display 
tootli brushes? We made a test which 
showed 44% increase in the stores where we 
had them on display! It is stated that over 
30% of all tooth brushes are sold in chain 
stores. Why do they sell that many? Tooth 
brushes are displayed in counter cabinets in 
practically all chain drug stores. Ninety per 
cent of the large independents display tooth 
brushes in cabinets. But when you get to the 
small independent stores, tooth brushes are 
displayed in cabinets on the counter in only 
43%, of the stores. We know, of course, that 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

counter space is limited in small stores. You 
have been in some of these small independ- 
ent stores where the counter is so heaped 
with merchandise that there is hardly room 
for the clerk to pass your change across the 
counter. He is usually hidden from view. In 
fact, he could open up in the morning with- 
out putting his pants on — all he needs to do 
is comb his hair and he is ready for business. 
You never see anything but the top of his 
head. ' ' 

The Committee on Time and Place was 
called upon for their report by President 
HoUingsworth. Chairman J. C. Brantley, Jr., 
reported that several letters and telegrams 
of invitation had been received from 
Wrightsville Beach and Wilmington. There- 
fore, Mr. Brantley reported that the Com- 
mittee offered Wrightsville Beach as their 
suggestion. After much discussion, motion 
was made and seconded that this be a ten- 
tative choice and that the final decision 
would rest with the Executive Committee. 

President HoUingsworth then called on 
Assistant Secretary-Treasurer C. M. Andrews 
for his report.

ident's Address which was given at this 
time, will be found in this issue immediately 
following the President 's Address. 

President HoUingsworth then called for 
the report of the Committee on Resolutions 
by Chairman Rogers McDuffie. 


The first Resolution was submitted by 
Bryan H. Whitford and was moved for 
adoption by Chairman McDuffie. 
WHEREAS, it is recognized that the United 
States of America and the British Empire are the 
last of the great world democracies ; and 

WHEREAS, the United States and the British 
Empire are united in that they have similar aims 
and ideals in the government of their people, in 
that they are from a common racial descent, and 
in that they place God above any person, state or 
nation ; and 

WHEREAS, certain enemies have arisen against 
the British Empire which threaten the existence 
of the democratic ideals of the aforementioned 
sister democracies, and 

WHEREAS, the British Empire is now vali- 
antly defending herself and other smaller democ- 
racies who have appealed to her for aid ; and 

WHEREAS, the United States is unwilling to 
let the British Empire assume the full responsi- 
bility for the preservation of the ideals upon 
which our homes and religions are founded, and 
WHEREAS, in an expression of her unwill- 
ingness, the United States is rendering aid to 

The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


the British Empire by manufacturing war mate- 
rials and other supplies for this oppressed democ- 
racy; and 

WHEREAS, this aid would be more effective 
if some system were devised whereby the delivei->' 
of said materials and supplies would be assured 
and not subjugated to blockade warfare as is 
now the ease ; therefore, 

BE IT RESOLVED, that in the interest of de- 
mocracy, the North Carolina Pharmaceutical As- 
sociation strongly urge that a system of convoy- 
ing war materials and other supplies to the ports 
of England and to the ports of other oppressed 
nations by the United States Navy be devised, 
and that the Navy become responsible for the 
safe transit of the cargoes, and that such a sys- 
tem be devised and inaugurated with all possible 

The resolution was duly adopted. 

A resolution submitted by R. R. Copeland 
was given an unfavorable report by the 
Resolutions Committee. 


WHEREAS, by virtue of his office as Presi- 
dent of the North Carolina Pharmaceutical Asso- 
ciation and feeling his experience in this office 
very valuable in assisting the Executive Commit- 
tee, therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED, that the retiring President 
automatically become a member of the Executive 
Committee for a term of three years. 

Chairman McDuffie explained that the 
Committee thought it best to reject this 
resolution since it might be possible that at 
some time in the future an unsuitable Pres- 
ident might be elected who would make an 
unsatisfactory member of the Executive 

Chairman McDuffie then read a resolution 
submitted by J. C. Brantley, Jr., and moved 
its adoption. 


WHEREAS, the North Carolina Department of 
Agriculture .jointly sponsored the jiassage of the 
Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act in this State with 
the co-operation of the North Carolina Pharma- 
ceutical Association and the North Carolina Board 
of Health during the 1939 General Assembly; and 
WHEREAS, the above named Act defines and 
prohibits adulteration, misbranding and false ad- 
vertising of foods, drug, cosmetics and devices as 
to manufacturing, sale, holding or offering for 
sale such foods, drug, cosmetics, and devices; and 
WHEREAS, both the 19.39 and 1941 General 
Assemblies of North Carolina failed to provide 
funds for enforcing the Act, and 

WHEREAS, any legislation of a corrective na- 
ture is a penalty on the honest manufacturers, 
distributors and retailers when not enforced; and 

WHEREAS, it is the belief of pharmacists gen- 
erally and this Association in particular, that the 
Department of Agriculture should immediately 
clarify its position as to the labeling and danger- 
ous drugs sections of the Act; and 

WHEREAS, the present Food, Drug and Cos- 
metic Act represents a tremendous advance in 
the purposes and objectives of the 1906 Food and 
Drug Act which it succeeds ; and 

WHEREAS, the North Carolina Department of 
Agriculture has the necessary trained personnel 
and equipment but lacks sufficient funds for 
proper enforcement of the Act; therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED that the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association urgently request Gov- 
ernor J. Melville Broughton to immediately allo- 
cate funds to the North Carolina Department of 
Agriculture for the enforcement of the North 
Carolina Pood, Di-ug and Cosmetic Act ; and 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of 
this resolution be forwarded to the Honorable J. 
Melville Broughton, Governor of North Carolina ; 
to Doctor Carl Reynolds, State Health Officer, and 
to Doctor B. W. Kilgore and Mr. W. A. Queen 
of the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. 

The resolution was duly adopted. 

A resolution submitted by Paul H. Thomp- 
son was moved for adoption by Chairman 


WHEREAS, the Tydings-Miller Fair Trade En- 
abling Act was x)assed by Congress after a full 
and complete understanding of both its purpose 
and effect; and 

WHEREAS, the act is based upon the tradi- 
tional American doctrine that the states are free 
to attend to their own business in their own way; 

WPIEREAS, the North Carolina Fair Trade 
Act was originally passed and ratified on March 
22, 1937, and its provisions upheld and declared 
constitutional in every particular by the Supreme 
Court of the State of North Carolina on Septem- 
ber 27, 1939, therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED by the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association in convention assem- 
bled that we very vigorously oppose any attempt 
to repeal the Tydings-Miller Act, and hereby very 
earnestly call upon the North Carolina Delegation 
in Congress to stand with us in this objective. 

The resolution was duly adopted. 

A resolution submitted by Clyde Eubanks 
was moved for adoption by Chairman Mc- 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

MENT OF H. R. 3383 

WHER'EAS, it is generally recognized that we 
are faced with the obligation to reduce the cost of 
medicines to the public whenever this can be 
done without sacrificing quality or reliability ; and 
WHEREAS, ethyl alcohol is used in the manu- 
facture of some of the most important medicinal 
preparations as an essential solvent or preserva- 
tive; and 

WHEREAS, ethyl alcohol used in the prepa- 
ration or preservation of drugs and medicines 
now bears an excessively high excise tax which 
is related directly to the high cost of medicines 
and medical care; therefore 

BE IT RESOLVED that the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association urges the enactment 
by the National Congress of H. R. 3383, the pur- 
pose of which is to lower the tax on non-beverage 
ethyl alcohol, and thus to bring about a reduc- 
tion in the cost of medicines and medical care. 
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of 
this resolution be forwarded to the Honorable 
Robert L. Doughton, Chairman of the Ways and 
Means Committee of the House of Representa- 

The resolution was duly adopted. 

A resolution submitted by H. C. McAllis- 
ter was moved for adoption by Chairman 

WHEREAS, the attendance at the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association Convention has 
increased during the past decade to the point 
where it is one of the largest in the South and 
one of which we can be justly proud; and 

WHEREAS, the members of the North Carolina 
Pharmaceutical Association and its auxiliary 
bodies, the Traveling Men's Auxiliary and the 
Women's Auxiliary, are the individuals for whom 
the Convention is primarily held ; and 

WHEREAS, the expense necessary to provide 
all persons attending the Convention is equally 
distributed and is becoming burdensome for the 
Association and its auxiliary bodies ; and 

WHEREAS, the financial condition of the As-

To His Excellency, 

Governor J. Melville Broughton, 

Baleigh, N. C. 


In compliance with Section 6654 of the 
Consolidated Statutes of North Carolina, I 
have the honor to submit to your Excellency 
and the North Carolina Pharmaceutical 
Association a report of the proceedings of 
the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy for 
the year ending May 31, 1941. 


During the year two meetings of the 
Board were held, both at Chapel Hill, North 
Carolina. These Avere held June 18 and 19, 
1940, and November 19 and 20, 1940; the 
first meeting being the annual meeting. 

At the June meeting of the Board, Mr. 
J. G. Ballew of Lenoir, North Carolina, pre- 
sented his commission from the Governor as 
a member of the Board for a term of five 
(.5) years, from April 28, 1940. Attached 
thereto was the oath of office taken before 
the Clerk of Superior Court of Caldwell 
County. He re-entered upon the duty of 
the office. 


Two examinations were held during the 
year in June and November, both in the 
Howell Hall of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill, N. 
C. The following pharmacists were success- 
ful and were registered and licensed.

Inspection Worl' 
It has been very gratifying to our Board 
to be able to have two Inspectors in the 
field for the entire year just past. These 
were Mr. 11. C. McAllister and Mr. W. J. 
Smith. I am glad to say that Mr. Smith's 
employment was brought about through a 
joint conference of the Executive Committee 
of the Association and the Board of Phar- 
macy. Upon the election of Mr. Smith as 
Secretary-Treasurer of the Association and 
Editor of the Carolina Journal of Phar- 
macy to succeed Dean J. G. Beard, who had 
resigned, an agreement was made with the 
Board of Pharmacy that if Mr. Smith was

For the past several years it has been 
the custom for the inspectors to promote the 
interest of the North Carolina Pharmaceuti- 
cal Association as far as possible. In this 
connection I have collected $906.00 and se- 
cured twenty-one new members. About 
thirty days all told were spent in promot- 
ing and assisting with the Commercial 
Clinics and the Retail Drug Institute, both 
of which are sponsored by the North Caro- 
lina Pharmaceutical Association. 

Investigations have been made of some 
herb specialist or other quacks and Avill be 
continued, perhaps in cooperation with the 
Xortli Carolina Medical Society and the 
North Carolina Department of Public 
Health. These cases are rather frequent and 
some are of a serious nature. It is felt 
that by working with the above-mentioned 
organizations a better spirit of cooperation 
will be fostered between them and the Board 
of Pharmacy as well as the Pharmaceutical

May 1, 1940 to May 1, 1941 

Drawer 151, 
Chapel Hill, N. C, 
May 1, 1941. 
To the Members of 
The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy: 

I have the honor to submit herewith my 
report of inspection work from May 1, 1940 
to May 1, 1941. 

During the past year my work for the 
North Carolina Board of Pharmacy may be 
classified into two periods: (1) May 1, 
1940 to July 1, 1940 and (2) July 1, 1940 
to May 1, 1941. For the first three-month 
period my time was devoted exclusively to 
inspection work for the Board following 
which, upon assuming the duties of Secre- 
tary-Treasurer of the North Carolina Phar- 
maceutical Association and Managing Editor 
of the Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

on July 1, 1940, I devoted part time to the 
duties of this office. 

Although failing in an effort to visit 
every drug store in the State, a total of 
764 or approximately 85% of the total 
number of drug stores in North Carolina 
were contacted during the year. In order 
to visit this number of establishments it 
was necessary to travel 14,654 miles. 

The North Carolina Board of Pharmacy, 
actively co-operating with the Buncombe 
County Medical Society, successfully closed 
the A. J. Goforth case of West Asheville 
during the May 1940 term of the Buncombe 
County Superior Court. The bill of indict- 
ment charged Goforth with: 

(1) "Selling proprietary medicines or 
remedies purporting to cure cancer or other 
diseases for which no cure has been found." 

(2) "Unlawfully and willfully prescrib- 
ing, selling or giving away medicine and 
remedies for the treatment of a person 
afflicted with a venereal disease, and did 
fail to make any report thereof" as re- 
quired by statute. 

(3) "Practicing or attempting to prac- 
tice medicine or surgery without a state 
license. ' ' 

(4) "Practicing or attempting to prac- 
tice medicine without registering and ob- 
taining a certificate from the clerk of 
superior court." 

After a trial lasting three days the de- 
fendant was found guilty as indicated in 
the following judgment handed down by the 
Honorable Wilson Warliek, Presiding 
Judge : 

State of North Carolina, 
County of Buncombe 

In the Superior Court 

State \ 

vs. V Judgment 

A. J. Goforth, Defendant f 

The foregoing case coming on for judgment at 
the regular .Tune, 1940, term of the Superior Court 
of Buncombe County on a conviction at the May, 
1940, regular term as appears in the minutes, 
continuance for judgment having been asked by 
counsel for the defendant in open court, without 
prejudice, and being agreed to by the Solicitor, 
the matter of the continuance for judgment being 
embraced in the minutes of the Superior Court of 
Buncombe County, the judgment of the Court is 
that the defendant on the verdict of the jury in 
the case under Section 6622 of the Consolidated 


The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 

Statutes, entitled Practicing Without License and 
upon a bill drawn under Section 6623 entitled 
Practicing Without Registration, and the two 
counts being consolidated for the purpose of 
judgment, it is 

Ordered and adjudged that the defendant be 
confined in the common jail of Buncombe County 
and assigned to the State Highway and Public 
Works Commission for two years. The foregoing 
sentence of imprisonment is suspended for a pe- 
riod of five (5) years on the following conditions: 

1. That the defendant pay the costs of the ac- 
tion as taxed by the Clerk of the Superior Court 
of Buncombe County, $209.00. 

2. That he be and remain continually of good 

3. That he desist and cease entirely from in 
anywise concocting any preparations made from

him to be used in anywise in giving away or

ment whatsoever, at any place in North Carolina. 

4. That he desist and cease from all advertis- 
ing looking toward notifying the public by any 
means whatsoever that he possesses any qualifica-

in North Carolina. 

5. That he dismantle entirely any laboratory, or 
said to be laboratory, shelving or said to be shelv- 
ing, and immediately destroy any bottles and labels, 
cuts, booklets, letterheads, leaflets, etc., containing 
any contents which have heretofore been used by 
him in any way in putting so-called preparations 
on the market for sale or giving away to any 
third person, at any place in North Carolina. 

6. That he immediately remove from about his 
premises any signs, billboards or other indicata 
of any means or character whatsoever that would 
tend to show that at that place any preparations 
of any kind can be administered by being sold

any supposed or genuine human ailment.

If it should be made to appear that th3 defena- 
ant has breached any of these conditions during 
the period of suspension, capias to issue to put 
into effect the sentence suspended, all on motion 
of the Solicitor in open court. 

Immediately following the Goforth ease, 
W. T. Hyams of Bryson City was indicted 
for operating the Hyams Drug Company of 
that city without having first secured a 
drug store permit from the North Carolina 
Board of Pharmacy and for failure to keep 
a registered pharmacist on duty in the store. 
A True Bill was returned by the Grand 
Jury following which the presiding judge, 
after all evidence had been presented, found 
the defendant guilty and ordered him to 
immediately comply with all the regulations 
governing the operation of a drug store as 
well as to pay all costs of the case. 

After July 1, with the exception of two 
trips to western North Carolina, most of 
mj' time was spent in Raleigh on legislative 
matters or in visiting druggists in eastern 
North Carolina. While on these trips to 
the eastern section of the State, either Mr. 
H. C. McAllister of the Board of Pharmacy 
or Mr. Joe Hollingsworth, President of the 
N. C. P. A., accompanied me. 

For the splendid cooperation of Secretary- 
Treasurer, F. W. Hancock, the members of 
the N. C. Board of Pharmacy, and Assistant 
Inspector H. C. McAllister, I am deeply 

Respectfully submitted,

Like leaves on the current cast, 
With never a break in the rapid flow —

Into the dreamland of the past.

The 1941 Revenue Bill 

Tlie new Federal Tax Bill, providing for 
a lU9c retail sales tax on cosmetics, furs 
and jewelrj-, became effective on October 1. 
Druggists, already burdened with an exces- 
sive amount of record keeping, assumed this 
additional responsibility Avith practically no 
instructions from the Internal Kevenue De- 
partment. For this reason there has been 
considerable confusion as to exactly what 
to tax and the proper method for recording 
the sale in order to avoid dispute at tax 
collecting time. 

Although officials of the N. C. P. A. 
possess little information which has not al- 
ready ajipeared in various trade publications 
we are publishing tliis month, in condensed 
form, a summary of the Bill together with 
a list of taxable merchandise. The article, 
prepared by Attorney F. O. Bowman, ap- 
pears on pages 273-276. 

If you get tired of recording taxable 
sales, stop a minute and think how much 
harder it would be to pay the tax yourself. 
The Bill, as original]}- written, was a re- 
tailers' tax — an additional tax heaped up- 
on your business. Due to the aggressive 
efforts of local, state and national associa- 
tions, the Bill was finally amended to in- 
clude a "pass on" clause. 

Wliile the Bill was being considered in 
Washington, Attorney Bowman made three 
trips to the Nation's capital in your inter- 
ests. Had not tlie various associations de- 
manded the tax lie jjroperlj- placed on the 
consumer, you would undoubtedly be pay- 

ing the tax today, which, in turn, would 
have been ruinous to your business in cos- 

Do These Things 

Keep track of all sales of mer- 
chandise affected by the law. 

Include not only cosmetics 
and toiletries but watches, clocks 
and jewelry. 

Collect the 10 per cent tax on 
all taxable sales. 

Do not infer that the tax is 
not passed on. 

Have your records clear in 
order to avoid dispute at tax- 
col lectinjr time. 

Merchandising Clinics 

Beginning in Ashcvillc on November 10 
and continuing in Charlotte, Winston- 
Salem, Durham and Goldsboro on successive 
days, the N. C. P. A. will sponsor a series 
of five one-day Merchandising Clinics. A 
caravan of outstanding speakers has been 
scheduled on tiie programs, details of wliich 
are listed on pages 264-265. 

Arrange now to attend one of these meet- 
ings—you '11 not be disappointed.

New Departments 

Two new departments have been added to 
the Journal this month: (1) Notes and 
Queries by Professor H. M. Burlage of 
Chapel Hill and (2) The Woman's Auxiliary 
Page, edited by Mrs. W. J. 8mith, a mem- 
ber of the Women 's Auxiliary. 

Frequently inquiries reach the Secretary's 
desk from members of the Association and 
readers of tlie Journal who desire specific 
information regarding prescription room 
problems encountered by them during the 
course of their daily work. In order to 
facilitate matters, Professor Burlage has 
agreed to render wliatever assistance he can 
in the solution of these problems. Prescrip- 
tions of general interest encountered by 
Professor Burlage will be published month- 
ly provided sufficient interest is manifested 
in this new service. 

Professor Burlage, past President of Eho 
Chi, National Pharmaceutical Scholastic 
Society, and former Cliairman of the Scien- 
tific Section of the American Pharmaceuti- 
cal Association, is well qualified to handle 
this new assignment. For the past ten years 
he has taught pharmacy at the U. N. C. 
School of Pharmacy and thus has had an 
opportunity to study many problems which 
daily confront the practicing pharmacist. 

For sometime the Editor of the Journal 
has been aware of the fact that the publi- 
cation is being widely read by the wives of 
pharmacists, especially those who are mem- 
bers of the Women's Auxiliary. In order to 
recognize this particular group and to give 
publicity to the activities of the various 
local auxiliaries, the second department men- 
tioned above has been inaugurated. 

Constructive criticism of the existing 
Journal setup with suggestions for further 
improvement of the publication will be wel- 
comed by the Editor. 

Brain Buster 

At a recent gathering there were present 
a chemist, a pliysician, a pharmacist and a 
salesman. Their names (not in the same 
order) were Matthew, Malachi, Malone and 
Percy. Matthew and the salesman were not 

friendly with Malone but Malachi and the 
pharmacist took vacations together. Malone 
was related to the chemist and the physician 
was a good friend of Percy and the phar- 
macist. Can you pair up the professions 
witli the names? 

Shelby Pharmacist Uses Goat Cart 

A local druggist, Paul Webb, Sr., the 
official greeter for Shelby and Cleveland 
County, cooperates with the Government in 
coping with the gasoline shortage in the 
United States — by riding about the city 
streets in a goat cart! It is pulled by an 
old white Billy belonging to Jeff Dednion, 
who trades in everything from turnip gTeens 
to livestock. 

If you are walking the streets of Shelby 
and hear a nervous whistling of assorted 
tunes which are like unto a combination of 
Beethoven and boogy-woogie, and suddenly 
3'our hat is mashed in, or you are slapped 
in the pants or on the back, that is Paul 
Webb, one of the town characters. Ten to 
one he '11 greet you with, ' ' Hello Raggedy ' ' 
or the first thing that comes into his mind. 
And too, he '11 ask you if you 're lost, or he 
might even offer to conduct you on a per- 
sonal tour of the town. For it 's his hobby 
to stop out-of-town cars, making himself 
acquainted and showing them the city of 
Shelby in detail. 

And don 't you men folk, when passing 
through Shelby, get jealous if he taps your 
wife or girl friend on the cheek and asks 
where you got that pretty girl. He 's not 
being fresh, it's just his way. 

It was just such impulse that prompted 
him to start driving Jeff's goat through the 
streets, not for publicity but because that 
is what struck him for the minute. 

A Charlotte neAvspaper woman once came 
up to interview certain locals. Mr. Webb 
happened to see her when she got off the 
bus, introduced himself and maneuvered her 
about town until she was three hours late 
for her luncheon appointment. 

If you stay in Shelby as much as half 
a day on the streets, you will meet him and 
you won 't have to look for a goat either. — 
Charlotte Observer.

P. A. Hayes Completes Successful 
Year as Head of N. W. D. A. 

p. A. Hayes, President of Justice Drug 
Company, Greensboro, during the course of 
his Presidential Address to the delegates 
attending the Sixty-seventh Regular Meet- 
ing of the National Wholesale Druggists ' 
Association in White Sulfur Springs, W. 
A'irginia, September 29 to October 2, said, 
in part, ' ' The need of more registered phar- 
macists is so great it is recommended that 
our members take a more active interest in 
tlie education of future pharmacists by giv- 
ing scholarships to worthy pharmacy stu- 
dents, or make loans available to them ; to 
continue to give our support to vocational 
training by taking advantage of the Federal 
government 's George Deen program to se- 
cure commercial training for those employed 
in the retailing of drug products. ' ' 

As a result of President Hayes' recom- 
mendation to assist worthy pharmacy stu- 
dents, the following resolution was passed 
by the X. W. D. A.; Resolved: That the 
National Wholesale Druggists' Association 
fully endorses the proposed Independent All 
Drug Industry Committee to be organized 
for the purpose of securing scholarships for 
worthy young men and women who desire 
to enter colleges of pharmacy, and in other 
ways serve to assist such colleges through 
endowments, laboratory equipment, student 
loan funds, etc. 

A resolution, essentially the same as the 
one above, was passed by the National As- 
sociation of Retail Druggists on October 9. 

J. A. Goode of Asheville and Hon. J. M. 
Rroughton, Governor of North Carolina, ap- 
peared on the program. Mr. Goode, while 
discussing the subject of wholesaler-retailer 
cooperation, said, "There is a beautiful re- 
lation existing between the retailer and the 
wholesaler. The wholesaler is a sort of 
father confessor to the retailer. He helps 
him with his problems, he helps him with 
his bank account. If it hadn't been for the 
wholesaler, the field of retail drug distri- 
bution would be very sick indeed. It never 
would have made the grade "during the past 
five, seven or ten years. We retailers owe 
a great deal to the wholesaler; he is in- 
dispensable. But we do expect of the 
wholesaler information. Some philosopher 
back years ago said, 'The informed man is 
the stronger man. ' ' '

Xorth Caioliiui pliaimacists, by means of 
window displays, radio, newspaper and per- 
sonal appearances before civic and fraternal 
organizations observed National Pharmacy 
Week moie widely this year than has been 
the custom in the past. 

Although eomi)lete rejiorts from all the 
National Pharmacy Week Committee had 
not reached the Secretary of the N. C. P. A. 
at press date, sufficient information Avas at 
hand to indicate widespread interest 
throughout the State. 

On the night of October 15 C. C. Ford- 
ham, Jr. and Sam McFalls of Greensboro, 
discussed tlie importance of the pliarmacist 
to community health over Station WBIG. 
Following this ^Ir. Fordham appeared on 
the program of WBIG on the night of 
October 20 and delivered a fifteen-minute 
address on the subject "P'.iarmacy — a Pro- 
fession of Service. ' ' 

Later in the week President Ralph Rogers 
spoke from Durham over Station WDNC. 
His topic was ''Guardians of Health." 
John Brantley, Jr., a member of the Na- 
tional Pharmacy Week Committee, arranged 
for 14 spot announcements over the power- 
ful Raleigh station, WPTF.

School of Pharmacy in 1939 from the Uni- 
versity of Minnesota where he received a 
Ph.D. degree in pharmacy. Shortly after 
assuming his duties in Chapel Hill he or- 
ganized the Pharmacy Senate Avhich has

topics of commercial pharmacy. 

Quiet, unassuming, Avith a capacity to get 
things done, Professor Brecht 's promotion 
is well deserved.

Pharmacy School Registration Increases 

Enrollment figures of the U. X. C. School of Pharmacy for the year 1941- '42, 
recently released by Dean J. G. Beard, show a substantial increase over the number 
regristered this past year. Especially notable is the fact that 53 students are enrolled 
in the first-year class this year as compared with 42 one year ago, an increase of eleven 
students for this class alone. 

It was believed by some individuals that the pharmacy school registration would 
decrease tliis school term due to the defense program ; however, the following figures 
do not bear this out : 

Class 1940 1941 

First Year 42 53 

Second Year 31 26* • 

Third Year 30 34 

Fourth Year 32 29 

Graduate 2 1 

Total 137 143 

Also of interest is the number of women students registered in the pharmacy school 
this year. Twenty-two or I'^'Yc of the entire student body are women. Out-of-State 
students total 12 this year. 

The following students, arranged in alphabetical order, are members of the first

268 The Carolina Journal of Pharmacy 


Notes and Queries 

By H. M. BuRLAGE, Professor of Pharmacy, Chapel Hill, N. C. 
Readers of the Journal are invited to send in their prescription room problems to 
Professor Burlage who will render without cost any assistance he can. 



1. The following prescription Avas sub- 
mitted by a Greensboro pharmacist for 
study with the statement that a stringy 
curdy brown mass separates : 

Anesthesin 3 i 

Menthol gr. xv 

Camphor gr. xv 

Phenol 3ss 

Aq. detergens 3 i ss 

Zinc lotion q.s o i"^ 

M. Sig. Apply locally. 

This order from the physician represents 
some interesting features which might be 
confusing to the prescriptionist. (a) What 
is meant by ' ' Aq. detergens ' ' °? This refers 
to Liquor Picis Carbonis N.F. VI. and is 
the ingredient which causes the chief trouble 
in filling this prescription, (b) Zinc lotion 
was first construed to be the counterpart of 
Lotio Alba N.F. VI but upon further con- 
sultation with the physician and the phar- 
macist Avas found to be a zinc sulfate solu- 
tion (2 gr. to the fl. oz.) 

When mixed as the ingredients appear in 
the prescription, an unsightly preparation 
as described by the pharmacist is obtained. 
This may be somewhat improved by a change 
in the order of mixing but since this did not 
arrive at an elegant preparation it will not 
be recommended in this report. Since this 
preparation was one for external use, it 
was found that the addition of bentonite 
(5% Av/v), a mineral Avhich Avill b
